QUEEN ELIZABETH'S LICENSE TO RICHARD HOGHTON 

TO VISIT HIS BROTHER ThOMAS HoGHTON, AN EXILE 

FOR HIS " Blessed Conscience " 
Edited by Joseph Gillow 

Though the following document has never been printed in its entire^, I treated 
the subject at considerable length in Tk€ Haddock Papers^ published m 1888, and 
therefore it would be improper to trench upon space primanly devoted to original 
matter by repeating what is already in print I may remark, however, that I was 
led into error by the eminent seventeenth-century Lancashire antiquary. Dr. Richard 
Kuerden, in stating that the hero of "The Blessed Conscience" transferred the residence 
of his fiunily from the foot to the top of the hill at Hoghton. Since my account was 
written Hcmton Tower — abandoned by the Hoghtons as their residence from about 
1707 — has been admirably restored by the late baronet and his brother, the present 
Sir James de Hoghton, and upon a recent visit to Hoghton Sir James informed me 
that during the restoration it was made abundantly evident that the so-called 
erection of the castle by Thomas Hoghton between the ^ears 1563 and 1565 should 
have been descrit)ed as extensive additions and alterations to a very much earlier 
structure. A closer inspection than I had ever before made satisfied me that such 
was the case. I may add that the ancient bell from the suppressed chantry of 
Ashton-under-Lyne has awakened from its long slumber, and summons the inmates 
of the castle to their daily routine, though umortunately it has had to be partially 
recast; and Thomas Hoghton's portrait — through an unfortunate fire — is now the 
only ancient family picture that adorns the walls of Hoghton Tower. 

One word more with respect to the pathetic ballad, **The Blessed Conscience," 
which was wont to raise the most sensitive feelings in the hearts of Lancashire 
mnpathisers. Thomas Hoghton died at Li^e in 1580. In the following year 
BlefBed Edmund Campion was martyred, and straightway Henry Walpole sought 
relief for his emotion by pouring out his grief in verse — "An Epitaphe of the lyfe 
and deathe of the most fiunouse derke and vertuose priest, Edm&d Campian," 
which was secretly printed, together with other poetioU effusions on the same 
subject, by Stephen vallenger, and distributed broadcast. Walpole was one of that 
famous coterie of minor poets which even included within its ever-changing circlets 
personal friends of the greatest of English bards — William Shakespeare. Amongst 
these may be mentioned Richard Verstegan, Robert Southwell, poet and martyr, 
Stephen Vallenger, poet, printer, and exile, Anthony Greneway, Francis Tregian, the 
exile, Thomas Shelton, Richard Bamfield, Ralph Raddyffe, and "silver-mouthed" 
Anderton aiias "John Brereley, Priest." From these and such like came the 
Lacrymoi CatMuas — the outpourings of sorely afflicted souls — which gave relief to 
the pent-up feelings of our bitterly persecuted ancestors. Hoghton was a personal 
friend of Richard Verstegan, and probably assisted that indefiitigable worker in the 
cause of the Old Faith by partially ddfraying the expense of nis private printing 
press. Verstegan's "Odes^* are justly celebrated, though the whereabouts of three 
copies of the volume only are known — one of which is in the writer's possession — 
bat poems of his are to be found in many works. It was he who edited the work 
and wrote the verses in the martyred Earl of Arundel's translation of "An Epistle 
in the PerKHi of Christ to the Faithful! Soule" by the learned Lanspergius. And 
I have little doubt in my own mind that Verstegan was the author of "The 
Blessed Conscience." The dose connection of this touching lament with the

TO RICHARD HOORTON 



The endorsement of the document is partially obliterated; 
reads — " License for Richard Houghton Antwerp for 



The Queen's signature is at the head of the document, and at foot is that of 
the clerk of the signet, Thomas Wiodebank, who occasionally acted as Clerk of the 
Privy ConndL He was knighted bv James I. in 1603. By his wife, Frances, 
daughter of Sir Edw. Dymoke, of Scnvelsby, ca Lincoln, he left an only soo, 
Francis, and three daughters, of whom Mildred married Robert Reade, of 
Linkenbolt, Hants., and was mother of Robert and Thomas Reade, who both 
became Catholics. Of the latter, known as the Rovalist, a notice appears in my 
Bibliographical Dictionary of the English Catholics, Robert was for a time secretary 
to his uncle, Sir Francis Windebank. During the Civil Wars he fled to the 
Continent, and in 1647 visited Rome. In 1056 he was living in Paris, and 
translated and published *'The Spirituall Combat,*' dedicated to the Abbot Walter 
Montasue, and to which the Rev. Wm. Clifford added a preface. Sir Thomas 
WiodeDank's son, Sir Frauds, was also clerk to the si|piet, and eventually became 
Secretary of State. He always displaced strong Cathohc tendendes, which brouriit 
him into odium, and finally caused his political ruin. In December, 1640, he md 
to Calais with his nephew and secretary, Robert Reade, settled in Paris, and died 
there in 1646, having shortly before been recdved into the Church. 



No. II. 
TOWER BILLS 

The Tower Bills are « series of aocoonts sent in by the Lieatenant of the Tower 
for such prisoners as he maintained at the expense oi the Crown. They do not 
form an absolutely complete list of the prisoners, for Elisabeth made men of wealth 
pay for themselves. No reference will be found to Philip, Earl of Arundel, who 
was in the Tower from 1 585-1 595, nor to a man like George Gifford, who left his 
name on two pbices in the Beauchamp Tower, with the date, August, 1585, but he 
was a pensioner of the Court, and it would seem an aginU pmocateur. In BiU 
No. 39, the charges of Thomas Abington are sent in for a year and a hal£ The 
reason probably was that, as all his estates had been seized, payment could no 
longer be made from them. 

Again, there are some cases of what looks like bad book-keeping or dishonesty. 
Thus Alexander Bryant was sent to the Tower to be tortured on the 3rd of May, 
1 581 (T. R. Dasent, Acts of Privy Caundl, xiii, 37), but payment for his keep is 
demanded for the whole term beginning on Lady Day. Smaller faults are also 
observable here and there. 

In spite of these defects, the Tower Bills present us with invaluable informa- 
tion regarding the most conspicuous victims of religious persecution, not obtainable 
elsewhere. The series commences at the time when Elizabeth's government was 
still trusting to a policy of slowly starving Catholicism to death. 

The prisoners in the early lists are chiefly sympathisers with Mary Stuart 
The only English sufferer for religion seems to be Henry Alway, who will easily 
be identified with the Alwey mentioned at page 60 of our first volume, and 
with him the venerable Confessor, Richard Creajgh, Archbishop of Armagh. At 
Christmas, 1577, we find Thomas Sherwood, who is found with a cross opposite his 
name on the 9th of February, 1577-8, though his martyrdom is generally dated on 
the 7th. It is ngt till the end of 1580 that new priests from the seminaries, 
Johnson, Cottam, Kirby, &&, are sent in here to be tortured, for the Tower was 
the only prison in which this abuse of royal power was regularlv practised. 

In 1 581 we find a greatly increased number of prisoners, incluaing John Hart, 
whose Dtarium Tunis (first printed anonymously at the end of the Roman edition 
of Sander, De Scks'smate, 1585, and firequently since then) ^ves the most valuable 
^ account we possess of the sufferings endured by the prisoners. The Diary is 

sometimes, by error, attributed to £dward Rishton, who brought out the first 
edition of Sander; in which edition, however, this Diaty is not found. But, as 
appears from these bills, Hart was the only possible writer, whose term of imprison- 
ment coincides with the Diary, while Rishton seems never to have been in the 
Tower at all. 

Hart's constancy ^ed for a time under the terrors of his prison, but he 
eventuallv recovered courage, and persevered in the good confession. Nichols, who 
figures close beside him, fell away altogether. The Toss of the bills for the second 
half-year of 158 1 prevents us getting any notice of Father Campion, but the bills 
for 1582 show, by the curt note *'mort or "ex." against this or that name, what 
the date was at which those martyrs suffered. 

In the bill for Michaelmas, 1583, will be noticed the name of William Carter. 
Thia was the printer executed on a preposterous charge of exciting Catholics to 
assassinate Elizabeth, because he had printed a book which praised Judith. Then 
will be noticed the gradually increasing number of sufferers for other sham plots, 
the Ardens, Somervilles, &c. They show how Walsingham was gradually persuading 
Elizabeth and public opinion that her life was in danger. On the loth of July, 
1584, the Prince of Orange was assassinated in Holland, and the excitement caused 
by it enabled Walsingham's party to pass the bloody axle, known as that of the 
27th year of Elizabeth, according to which every Catholic priest was considered a 
traitor by the mere fact of his coming into England. 



TOWER BILLS 5 

This ezpUins the word "dismissed," which is found in the bills for Christmas, 
1584. Priests would not be liable to this Act unless they "came into" Eneland 
aJUriXs passing — ^so a number of them were exiled on the 21st of January, 1584-5, 
becoming liable to death ipso facto if they returned. 

After this the number of priests in the Tower was greatly diminished. The 
elaborate fraud of pretending that tlMsy were pc^tical offenders of the first class (as 
the Tower prisoners were supposed to be) was no longer necessary. They shared 
the lot of tne felons in Newgate, and their names (when recorded) are to be found 
in the "Prison Lists,'* printed in a previous volume of the Catholic Record Society's 
Pablications. 

The next great event illustrated by our bilb is the Babington plot The bill 
for Michaelmas, ic86, gives useful evidence of the dates at which the conspirators 
were confined, and when they were led forth to suffer. 

After this the lists are made up of 'suspects' of all sorts, of priests, such as 
Father Creighton, S.J., and of the future martyrs : Roger Ashton, Richard Leigh, 
and Robert Tankard. We find idso the names of Irish leaders, of some real traitors 
(coining was regarded as treason in those dajrs), and of some pretenders to that 
honour, as Pooley, Stafford, and Moody, who are known to us as agenis provocateurs 
of Walsingham in various sham plots contrived to ruin Queen Mary. 

After the Armada period the Tower Bills become rarer, but become once more 
a regular series during the Titus Oates period. These I propose to puUish in a 
future contribution. 

The papers themselves are somewhat difficult to edit, because of their constant 
repetitions, with little or no variation, of the tariff" according to which the expenses 
were calculated. This is given in full in every entry, with one or two exceptions, 
mentioned in the early bills. I have endeavoured to preserve the memory of this 
by occasional repetitions, and by the constant use of signs to show that omissions 
were being made, which were to be supplied according to the full formula 
previously quoted. 

The bills are now preserved at the Record Office, "Exchequer of Receipt, 
M i sce ll anea, Bundle 342.'' Mixed up with them occur an almost equal number of 
bOls for the salary of the Lieutenant, and payments of wardens, the gentleman 
porters, the jreomen waiters, &c My best thanks are due to Father P. Ryan, S.J., 
tor tnnscribing these diflkult records. j, h. P.

THE LIFE AND MARTYRDOME OF Mr. MA3tFIELD, 

PRIEST, 1616 

Thb vtaemble Thomai Maxfidd tuflered «l Tjrboni on Uie first of Jvly, 1616. Hk 
fcrtitude made a neat impression^ and letteis mving an account of his deatli 
were at once sent oy his finends in England to tSe Seminatjr at Donaj, whidi, in 
fact, he had bat lately left. At Dooair these aooovnts were recast as ^'relations," 
(hose intended for the foreign pnbfie being written in Latin. An early and fery 
brief form of soch a relation will be found m the Mnalhn^ §/ ike Akbktford Club 
(▼oL it p. 9J^)» printed from the Balfour MSS. in the Advocates'^ Library, Exlinburgh. 
lliere is also a very brief MS. relation amone the Westminster Archives (voL xv, 
^ 275)1 which is perhaps earlier stilt. It Is dated August li, 1616, being tbui 
endorsed; <*Relat]o Prxsidis Collegil Duaceni Anglorum de Martyrio K^Dmut 
D. Thoous Mazfieldi. Biusdem Collegii Alumni, pass JuUi xL— R. Aug. xi, 1616." 

As more news came in« a more ample history was put together, and on the 
15th of September, 1616, the censor's approbation was obtained for printing it. The 
title of the second edition shows that it was based on a letter sent nrom England by 
a priest, who had been a Douay student in past years. Tradition has ascribed to 
Dr. Kellison, then President of the (}oU(jge, tne credit of having given the story its 
final form and its Latin dress, though his name does not appear on the title pags, 
and the authorship seems to have remained unknown to the translator or ttie 
version now printed. The book itself was published before the end of the same year 
by the widow of Inwrence Kellaro, under the title i-^

eHiHs aueUi^ et Latim reddita, Duaci, 1616, iSmc. 

It was reprinted in the following year, with accounts of three other Douay 
martyrs, who suffered in the same year as Maxfield.

Small Svo, pp. 56, with the censor's approbation, dated Douay, 15 Sept, 1616. 

Except in their opening and closing paragraphs, there seems to be little differ- 
ence between the two editions. Both are works of great rarity. There is a copy 
of the latter in the British Museum, but not of the former, and I am indebted to 
Mr. Joseph GiUow, the fortunate possessor of one, for information concerning it, as 
wdl as for the identification of the translator's name and the genealpgical and 
bibliogiaphical notes which follow. 

'fte quaint English translation, now printed for the first time, was made, as 
we shall see, some years after the martyroom, at the request of the Rev. lioUier 
Fhmoes Stanford, Prioress of the English Augustinian convent at Bruges, who 
claimed a iunily ooonecdon with the martyr, inasmuch as the wife of his brother, 
Peter Blaocleifield (or Maxfield), was a sister of the grandmother of the orioress. 
Peter Macclesfield, the eldest son and heir of the mark's father, Williaa liaodes- 
field, Esq., of Maer Hall and Chesterton Hall, oow Stdlbrd, maivied loan, daua^ter 
of Thomas Levison, of Wolverhampton, Esq., and sister of Sir Walter Lcraon, 
Knt. Mrs. Macclesfield^ aister, Anne, was tlw wife of Sir Robert Stanford, of 
Peny Hall, in the same county, Knt., and his son Edward, of the same place, was 
the fsther of the prioress. This good religious was bom in 1596, and in 1619 
was professed at the English Augustinian convent of St. Monica's, Ijouvain, which 
Ium! been founded in i6(^ In twenty jears the number of postulants had become 
so great that it was determined to bqpn a filiation at Bruges, and thither nine of 
the rd%ioits pcoceeded on September 14, ifia^, under the direction of Mother 



THE un and' MhiriflttltAi 6i^ M. i/iM#iBLD, priest $f 

Fhmces Stanford. It is clear, therefore, that the translation was presented to the 
prioress sometime between i^, when she went to Bruges, and 1635, the dcfe of 
ner death. 

The translator, who signs himkelf ''1. B.," is efidentfy to be Bentified with the 
Rev. John Bolt, chaplain and ofiganist at St Monica's, Louvain, at the time of the 
martyrdom and for many years later. It was no doubt during her residence at 
Louvain that he was induced by Mother Frances to undertake the transUtion, which 
occupied him, as he owns in the dedication, for so manf years. . 

Even this delay is worthy of passimr notice. Bolt, indeed, speaks of ** tmf 
nnwoonted hardnesse of the Latin t^le^ having daunted his courage and qtiHe 
dejected him. This must bb taken with the proverbial grain of salt. Dr. Kellison*s 
Latin is not particular^ crabbed, as a pernsal of the text will show. Bolt's diffi- 
culty was subjective. He had come to his studies for the Church as a middle-aged 
man, and writing was not his strong point His genius was for music, and nis 
career as a musician needs some notice in this intfodoction to his only known 
literary production. 

John Bolt was bom about 1563, of a &mily of some account in Exeter, as he 
is said to have had a brother a knight. His natural genius for music obtained him 
such reputation that he was summoned to Court, where he spent two or three years, 
his talents being highly esteemed by Queen ^izabeth — no mean judge in such 
matters. When he £:ft.the Court in order to become a Catholic, the Queen was 
so much displeased that, soundiv rating her Master of Music, she threatened to 
throw "her pantoufle at his heaa for looking no better unto him." It is recorded 
that her Majesty even went the length of offering to overlook his conversion, and 
allow him to remain a Catholic, if he would return to Court. But Bolt preferred 
to live by teaching music in Catholic families, where he could practise his religion. 
In this way he resided with Sir John Petre at Thorndon in Essex, with Richard 
Vemev at Compton in Warwickshire, and with others, finally being domiciled with 
the Wisemans of Braddocks in Essex at the time of his arrest with William 
Wiseman in Golden Lane, London, in March, 1593-4. He was thrown into prisoo, 
and the infiimous Topcliffe Intended to torture hitn, but through the intercession of 
Lady Penelope Rich, who had known him at Court, he was released, and enabled 
to withdraw to the Continent. ^ After settling for some years at St. Omers Colle^, 
where he doubtless taught music and acted as organist, he removed to the Engli^ 
Benedictine Convent at Brussels, " to help their music, which hath been so &mous." 
After three years, these good nuns persuaded him to join the English Benedietines 
at St. Gregory's Monastery at Douay, where he assumed the alias of Johnson 
(probably derived from his fitther's Christian name), and was there recei^ as a 
novice. Finding, however, that the Benedictine rule did not suit him, he removed 
to Doua^ Colleee^ and was ordained priest in 1605. For some years he resided 
in the diocese of Cambray, bat in 1613, whilst on a visit to Louvain to attend the 
profession of Sister Magdalen Throckmorton at St Monica's, he was induced by 
ue Prioress Wiseman to remain and accept the position of chaplain and oiganist 
to the convent And there the venerable man passed the remamder of Ms me in 
peace, dying on Angnt 3, 1640, at the advanced age of 77. 

The manuscript itidf is of great interest. In his introductory letter Bok aam 
" I thoughl it best to be written with myne owne hand." This be has done. Tht 
initials ''I. B.," ^;ned to the Introdnclt!on, have a special character about them, 
whfth of Itself Sdttests an intograj^, and the 27 paces (6!n. by 4|in.) ake til hi 
the taitie neat artistic hand. The torn maiigins of ea<^ page are ruled, dioae of the 
titles of ita reverie, and of the first pige^ nave also pea-and-ink ornaments on the 
borders, tlie oridnal binding was m marbled paper, the sides of which have been 
renewed. CHer the title is Written, "To our ctoster of Nazaret "— peihaps in 
Mother Stafford's hand. At the hade of the title is a print of the martyr, peSrhapa 
unique, which is here reproAiced, so ttat no fmther description of it is neceMuji 
eaoept to sav that it bears the artist's signature, " P. Pettet, fe. i6ai." Holdii^ 
this to the bght, one resds at the back, "To Mr. Barber.^ 

When 'the cknft of Beatifleuidft of the martyr was begun, the MS. was pte- 
serited, fh Jbne, l8fo, by the Reverend Mother of the Angnsttnians at Bruges to Ae

any other recommendation then the worth of the subject, any other

especialy considering the desier I saw you had to me thereof, & also 
my owne desier, longing to fulfill for your deare sake whatsoeuer was 
possible for my willing mind to procure & effect ; & although I thought 
it a thing most worthy my labour to bestowe sometyme in translating 
it, & to present your Reuerence with the first fruites thereof, yet 
taking it in hand both first and second tyme, the vnwoonted hardnesse 
of the Latin style daunted my courage, and had quite deiected me

Many were the causes that dared me not to deliuer it into the

haue so greedely demaunded for the printing as that I should haue 
had nothing left to pay for the binding; & therefore considering 
otherwise I thought it best for to be written with myne owne han^ 
that so your Reuerence might remember it, & in remembring it, might

for you. Your's in what he is able.

The life <^ Martyrdom of 
M^ MaX'filde Priest 



]&eitereiiti, who here professe the Catholike faith, are brought into 
great straights of all things, they are calumniated, spoyled of their 
goods, manickled with fetters, thrust into prison, & as it were guiltie 
of wicked crimes are vexed with most greeueous iniuries & calumniat 
ignominies, as heretofore by the letters of others yee haue vnderstood. 

That which I now thought good is to declare vnto you more 
exactly the famous Martyrdome of on of your foster children & Priest, as 
of late yee haue heard something thereof reported by many relatings. 

(p. 6) This man was caled Thomas Maxfilde, heretofore amongst 
you named only Filde, borne of a noble & auncient race in the County 
of Stafford. His Father was Catholike, a man of worthy pietie, con- 
stande & grauitie, & who under the raigne of two princes was much 
renowned for his patient sufferance of a long imprisonmet, confisca- 
tion of all his goods, & lastly the sentence of death for the profession 
of his faith. 

This Thomas was nurst & brought into the world, both parents 
being in prison, that the prison, being of his parents faith a witnesse, 
should give to him their Sonn both breath & life for to lay downe 
his soul for the same faith hereafter, & that he likewise being borne 
to the conflicts of the faith should euen from his in£uicy be instructed 



34 THE Lira AND MARTYRDOMS 

in the same combats through the deformitie & incommoditie of a 
prison^ neither indeed did he sooner taste the milk of his Nurce (p. 7) 
when as by suffering the labours of Martyrs he himself wore the 
badge of a Martyr. 

That pietie, that zeal of faith & those precepts of a vertuous life 
he learnt at home, which afterwards throughout the whole course of 
his life flourished in him to the proffit of others. Being instructed 
somewhat in the Rudiments of a scholler, (because with vs here now 
none can frequent the studies of higher Arts except he make ship- 
wracke of his faith & drink the furious poyson of heresie,) he betooke 
himselfe to Douay in Belgio [16 March, 1603] a most flourishing 
Academy of all good Arts and vertue. There in your English Colledge, 
a famous fountaihe & Seminary of many Martyrs in Christ, he lined 
& heard his course of philosophic & almost two yeares of school 
diuinitie, but at the length being vexed with a greeuous and long 
sicknesse he was forced to intermitt his studies & retoume into 
England for to recouer his health [17 May, 1610]. 

This wee have beheld sometymes and have greened thereat, to 
witt, how young youthes of an excellent witt, whilst they confirme 
their forces & strength of body with new temptations either to loose 
quite their souls health, or at least to haue greatly put it in hazard, 
for that they suffer themselues to be enticed & ensnared with idle- 
nesse, remissnesse & voluptuousnesse in banquetings & the flattering 
reconcilers and fauourits of vices. But this young man was of that 
courage & hardinesse of mind, & of that continence & vertuous dis- 
position, that neither the faire alurements by nature inbread in vs, 
nor the lubricke wayes of vnconstant youth, {p. 8) nor the varietie of 
delights could lull asleep his vertue & strength, or persuaide him the 
least to runne astray or reuoake him from his purpose of good life & 
vertuous course. As soone therefore as he recouered he determined 
to retoume to his studies in learning & vertue againe, where comming 
againe vnto you and receaued into your company, he absolued & made 
an eixl of the rest of his course in diuinitie & then at length hauing 
receaued holy orders, he was designed, after the manner of the 
Colledge, to retoume into this vineyvd of ours [17. lul. 1615]. 

As soone as he arrived at London he went vnto that prison which 
is caled the Gate-house for to visit a Priest a most intimate friend 
of his who then was there a prisoner, in which place he celebrated 
his first Masse in England. Herein surely the diuine Prouidence 
was shewen least that at any odier place he should vndertake his 
Apostolical function, then where for the discharge of the same effected 
he was to be shutt up himselfe not long after m a continual custodie, 
but thence to be lead forth againe vnto a sure end of his life & 
vnto a most glorious crowne. Scarce had he laboured in our Lord's 
vineyard three mounths when as vpon the feast of All Saints, hauing 
said Masse, he was by the Sergeants of the heretike Bishops taken 
praying & giving thanks to God before the Alter, who drawing him 
with great force presented him before their Maisters. 

They then questioned him concerning his priest-hood whence he 
had it ? & why being a Priest he came into the land against the lawes 



OP MR. MAXFIBLD, miXST 35 

of the realme, also they demaunded of him concerning the oath of 
pretended fidelitie. But he boldly (p. 9) & freely confessed that he 
had receaved holy orders according to the Catholike rite & autoritie 
derived from the highest Bishop the Pope, & was likewise by his 
power confirmed whereby to stirr vp Catholikes to vertue & reduce 
those that were estraunged from the faith & from the Church vnto 
the vnion & communion of the same. Moreover he said that there 
were no lawes of princes which could abrogate or forbidd the lawefull 
mission of Priests which the supreame lawgiver Christ our Lord had 
established & confirmed, & as for the oath he quite refused it and 
did detest it for that it contained many things contrary to faith & 
that none could sweare it without daunger of his eternal saluation, 
neuerthelesse he said he was readie to exhibite all obedience to the 
king- in all ciuill matters that are due vnto him, or in all things 
belonging to right of princes. But all this was not according to their 
desier who preferre the Scepters of kings before the keys of the . 
Church; & whatsoeuer either right or wrong that they once shall 
determine to be against his Maiestie, they as it were with deceitfuU 
paintings doe colour with their counterfeit faith & false obedience of 
their princes, that thus at least their deeds might seeme lawfulL They 
therefore cast the Priest of Christ in prison at Westminster commonly 
caled the Gate-house, in which place he excelled those that were his 
fellow captiues for the faith, in his constancie in prayer to God, in 
his studie of conseruing peace with all, & in his often exercise of 
vertue ^ dailie labour for the gainening of soules to Christ, whence 
that plainely did shew itselfe vnto our eyes the which wee (p. 10) 
once redd in thecclesiasticall Annales, how that God is woont to 
chaunge prisons & stewes into temples & religious cloisters for his 
seruants, & that their feet may be in the stocks & fettered with 
chaines, & yet their mindes remaine fixed above tasting the heauenly 
sweetnesse. 

Neither content with the paines that others afflicted him with for 
the sweet name of Jesus, he added of his owne mortifications of his 
bodie compassing it with a sharpe-pointed Iron chaine for a girdle, 
to the end he might according to the Apostle's counsel [i. Cor. 9] 
castigate his body & bring it vnto seruitude, thereby in what he was 
able to extinguish quite the wantonnesse & concupiscence of the 
flesh, for if thou n^lectest to punish it, it will rise against the spirit, 
& vnless thou bring it into subiection, it will shake of both yoake & 
bridle of reason, & fiercely lusting beyond all bonds of the diuine 
law, it will cast thy soul downe headlong for euer. 

His dedicated hart to Christ did bume with zeal for such soules 
as perished, & inwardly was much greeved to see men redeemed with 
the precious blood of God to runne headlong into eternal punishment. 
And although he reaped some fruites of such his laboures being in 
prison, yett that was all to little in regard of the greater proffite for 
which in desier he burned, wherefore after eight mounthes imprison- 
ment or thereabout, he constituted with himselfe this, which was, how 
he might try to gett out of prison by some occasion whereby traveling 
here & there be might freely exercise his priestly funaions to the

greater ^ine of M>ule9, so to satisfie his longmg thirst he had of Aeir 
conuersion to God (p. ii) And this was & onelj canse that moaed 
him to attempt this his flight, as testified a reuerent Priest of the 
Hocietic of Jesus who was his Confessarius there. He first recom- 
mendeth the matter by many prayers vnto God togither with certaine 
(layes of fast, almesgiving & offering of the holy sacrifice of the Masse 
for that intention, praying earnestly that God would guide & direct 
this present businesse as also the whole course of his life for his 
diuine honour & glorie, & that he would graunt that event whidi 
might be best for the fulfilling of his diuine wilL 

These his godly desiers & holy puipose were receaued of the 
night designed for his flight [14 June, stiL vet, 1616I, & now it was 
come, therefore a barr of the windowe being broken ne attempted to 
escape, l)Ut alas, whilst he was descending from the vpper part of the 
house bv a rope and had scarce touched the ground wi& his feet, 
then a fellow caught him fast about the middle & cryed to the neigh- 
lK)urs for help. The watch being raised through his cry came hastily 
^ in a chafcmg & fretting humour they snatch the Priest & thrust 
him vndcr a table where he might not stand vpright, then putt about 
his ncckc an iron coller of twelve pound waight, to this hanging a chaine 
of a hundred nound waight, they compassed his body round there- 
with, Ac lastly sfuit him within the dungeon of the prison, where they 
Nctt his feet after that manner in the stocks that he could neither 
•taiul vp nor lyo downc, nor so much as tume himselfe, but hanging 
MS it wrrr between (p. is) heaven & earth he might sitt double with 
grmt tn>ublr ^ painc. There did they leave him from the dawning 
of Kiidny vntil Mutulay to be vexed & tormented in that manner for 
mort' than 70 lunicrs, |)ermitting neither hatt, cloake, blancket or strawe, 
no. not NO much as to exonerate his body. They that were in prison

deformed by reason of hunger, watching & filthinesse of the place, 
that yee could scarse know him. His feet were so benummed that 
for a great space he could neither stand nor walke. At length having 
receaued the vse of his feet, they pluck him along with his hands 
bound through the streets without either cloake or kitt into the other 
prison which was a good long mile from this he was in. The fellow 
who intercepted the Martyr in his flight behoulding what miseries he 
endured, wept & greeved that he had hindered him, & therefore gave 
him his cloake to the end he might more decently goe thrdugh the 
streetes; another Priest that was in the prison gave him his hatt 

When he was brought to New-gate they loaded him afresh with 
chaines, neither would they permitt him to be amongst the Catholikes, 
nor yet amongst the better sort of protestants, but thrust him within 
the filtheist place of the prison amongst the rogs & theeues, who were 
very many in number & kept in great miserie; being put there & 
sleeping on the bords, for all this he was not vnmindfull of his vocation, 
but reduced two condemned persons vnto the Catholike faith, which 
when the keepers vnderstood, least he should doe the like againe, 
they removed him & permitted (p. 14) him to be amongst the other 
Catholikes & Priests that were there in the prison. 

It was then nine a clock at night, at which tyme it was not lawfiiU 
for any bed to be brought into the prison for him. Notwithstanding 
on of his fellow-prisoners a Catholike gave his bed vnto him to rest 
his wearie body after so many dayes travil he endured. The same 
night it pleased Almightie God to show vnto him that had lent his 
bed what a great personage he was vnto whom he had exhibited that 
charitable deed, for he saw in his sleep a sonn enclosed within that 
narrow place which he could neither compasse for the greatnesse, 
nor yet behould for the brightnesse, in so much that he was faine to 
cover his face with a vaile. 

The dayes of sessions were at hand to which upon Wedensdaj 
being the 26 of June* the seruant of Christ was caled where being 
questioned againe like as before by the false Bishops concerning his 
priesthood & the oath of pretended fidelitie, he againe confessed that 
he was a Priest and consecrated according to the Catholike rite, also 
that by a legitimate vocation & autoritie he was designed from the 
Apostolical Sea vnto this vineyard of England; the oath he vtterly 
denyed, not for that he refused to obey civill fidelitie to the king, 
but for that he preferred his faith towards God & the Catholique 
religion before the precepts & statuts of men. 

There stood as the manner is, twelve swome men of the Jwry, 
(p. 15) who were asked of the Judge what their opinion is concerning 
this man, who going aside & discoursing amongst themselues about 
the matter, at their retoume pronounced him guiltie of high treason, 
wherevpon he was straitwayes lead back to the prison, loaded with 
fetters & so strictly kept that it was lawfull for none to speake with him. 
Notwithstanding he procured thanksgiving for this benefit receaved, & 
Te Deum to be sung by his fellow captiues. The next day he is

brought againe before the Judges who vpon their faith offer him his 
life if so be he will take the oath afore mentioned, neuerthelesse he 
constantly denyeth it as before he often did, & withall yeeldeth the 
reasons which declare it to be vnlawful for any Christian to take it 
vnlesse he will preiudice his faith & saluation of his soule, & then 
turning himselfe to the people that were about him, caleth them all to 
witnesse how free he was from treason for which they had condemned 
him, & how they had accused & iudged him for no other cause but 
for that he being a Priest, consecrated after the Catholike rite, was 
entered the land against the lawes of the kingdome, & that this 
crime (if so they will have it to be a crime), they would forgive him 
gratis if so he would prooue periurious to God and the Romaine 
Catholik foith. He would haue added many things more whereby to 
cleare his innocency, but the Judges would not permitt him to speake 
further, but rather gave sentence against him, w^ was that he should 
dye as a traytor. 

He is therefore sent againe to the prison, (p. i6) the Sergeants 
drawing, pressing & pushing him forwards through the streetes as he 
goeth, & at length haueing put chaines vpon him they thrust him into 
a comer of the priscm and strictly forbid any leave to come to speake 
with him, & in this manner was he kept vntil Munday. Neither yet 
would they permitt him to be at quiet, for all he was shut vp with so 
many bar-doars, for they sent vnderhand such as should search his 
chamber if they could find any letters whereby to attach him of scmie 
crime, & to look whither they could find any thing belonging to the 
Catholike faith. The Shyreus also brought in a Minister to trouble 
him with contention & wrangling for such seeke not to know the truth 
who come to Priests onely when they are to dye, & fly & abhorre to 
approach vnto those that are detained in prisons though prouoaked & 
challenged thereto. There were Catholikes who gave money to come 
to the Priest, but it was wounderfull vnto them to see him thus 
chaunged as they found him, for his eyes, face and countenance was 
very pleasant & chearfull ; constant in his hope & confidence towards 
God, & his discourse did breath forth an incredible (p. 17) feruour of 
the loue of God and his neighbour ; moreover all his speeches were so 
seasoned with diuine sweetnesse that now you might perceaue him to 
haue alreadie in his hart those ioyes which afterwards did expect him, 
for God is woont to visit such as are in tribulation for his name, yea 
rather to converse togither with them in their chaines & torments, also 
to proue the waight of the temptations & to taste the chalice of their 
passion, & according to the greatnesse & multitude of their torments to 
mfuse within their harts as much of his heauenly grace and sweetnesse 
as will wipe forth and blott out all feeling of greife and earthly 
tribulation. Whence may they lustly sing with the psalmist (psaL 93) 
Secundum muUituditum dolarutn meorum in corde meo, consolationes 
tua latificavtrunt animam meam, '^According to the multitude of my 
sorrowes in my hart, thy consolations have made my soul ioyfull." 

Amonst those that made entrance into the martyr there was 
a certaine gentlewoeman who was renowned not so much for the 
greatnesse of her gentrie as for her sanctitie of life. She hauing put 



OF MR. MAXFIELD, PRIEST 39 

on a poore habite, assumed for a companion another woeman conscius 
of her fact, & so entered the prison as if she had had some husband 
or father there to bring him some meate. When she was within what 
by humble entreatie & faire speeches vnto the keepers with liberal 
bestowing of money vpon them & promising more hereafter, she pro- 
cured so farr as that she wrested a licence to speake to the Martyr. 
This woeman declared vnto us afterward how after many most sweet 
discourses of heauenly matters she had togither with him talked 
concerning such necessaries as he wanted, the which she entreated 
him to demaund of her if he stood in need of any thing, either for 
his food and apparel, or for (p. i8) the discharge of his being at cost 
for any thing to the prison, or if he would haue any help from his 
freinds, or whatsoever els he thought necessarie, that he would speak 
vnto her for it, the which she would most willingly procure if it lay in 
her power, if not, she would effect it through the help of others ; but 
the Martyr, (as she tould vs,) rendred her great thanks & saied that 
as yet he had not asked any other thing then the daylie prayers of 
Catholikes that God would strengthen him with his grace, to the end 
he might be able to suffer the labour & undergoe the daunger of 
the combat which now he was to vndertake. Then she saied she 
somewhat feared least feare of death had layed hould on him, & 
therefore inculcated such motiues as she remembered of contemning 
death ; first that the whole life of man was composed and ordained to 
etemitie & [^lasted] but a moment; secondly that the most cruelest death 
is but one mstant of that same moment on which eternity did depend 
immediatly; thirdly that those torments which merit celestial loyes 
ought rather to be iudged pleasures & solaces then paines and torments; 
fourthly that they who lay vpon a soft feather-bed, sick of the $tone or 
pained with the ach of their sides or ioynts, would feel greater paipes 
then they who were wrested on the rack or hung vpon the gibbet for 
Christ his sake, for God doth mingle with the torments such comforts 
as doe take away the feeling of paine. Moreover she willed him to 
thinck on the victories of the Martyrs, & imitate the constant faith of 
them whose tryumphs & rewards he coueted; lastly she said that 
death was not to be feared vnto which an immortalitie did succeed, 
for by the shortnesse of a holy death, a blessed life should be had 
in possession, & that which in vs here is a light & momentary 
tribulation, the same doth worke in heauen an eternal (p. 19) waight of 
glorie. These she saied, & afterwards he made answere thus (as she 
declared vnto vs). There is cause indeed, renowned Mistresse, why I 
ought to yeeld great thanks vnto Almightie God for that through his 
grace I feare not either paines torments, or infamie of a traytor, or 
yet the very paine of death itselfe, nor ever will I feare in so good a 
cause. Of late that troubled me, least standing before the tribunal of 
the Judges something might have slipped from me, being questioned 
of so many, which the heretickes taking in the worst sense mi|;ht 
have found occasion thence to calumniate the Catholikes, but seeing 
through God Almightie's goodnesse all things happened according to 
my mind there is now no more cause why I should feare, yet this I 
remembered that X was man, that is, fraile & weake, & that for me 



4C THE UFE AND MARTYRDOME 

to perseuer firme in &ith was altogither from the diuine help and 
assistance. Wherefore that I may crave the same hereafter, diffiding in 
myne owne prayers & merits I doe entreate earnestly to be assisted 
with the prayers of the good, for neither shall I endeauour sufficiently 
enough in the meriting of that benefit on which eternal saluation 
doth depend, yet I confesse my selfe most vnworthie thereof. 

The brother also of the Martyr came to the prison for to visite 
him, whom full of teares on his face and breaking of his wordes with 
sighes, a grave, constant Catholike a lay-man who had been long in 
prison did rebuke and chide, affirming him to be vnworthie of his 
Father, vnworthie of this his Brother, & d^enerating from the whole 
familie & race, also vngrateful of this diuine benefit the most noblest 
that might be bestowed vpon mortal men. (p. 20) Let me not liue, 
quoth the other, if I take not the greatest contentment and ioy as is 
possible for me ; neverthelesse I am not able to represse these teares 
which of their owne accord doe flowe for to pay the tribute of nature 
which naturaly is due to the death of a most deare Brother that so 
that truth may shew it selfe, which is, that the good can togither with 
a sensible and terrene greife, enioy a solide & celestial gladnesse of 
mind, as it is knowne the bad do walke reioycing with all their corporal 
mirths and worldly contentments, and yett enduer the most bitter 
vexations and afflictions in their minds. 

The rest who had been to see him were for the most part of the 
better sort of Spaniards that inhabited London, & amongst these was 
the Embassader's Sonn & Father Didacus de Fuente, on of the familie 
of St Dominike, & a man both pious, learned, prudent & charitable, & 
of life famous for the strict obseruance of the rule of his order; he 
was Ghostly-father to the Embassader. After these as the leaders of 
the companie, followed the rest of his excellence's familie & diuerse 
others who for other causes remained in the citty, who all came 
through the streets vnto the prison to see him that was a Priest & 
member of their owne religion & catholike faith & who seemed vnto 
them to be condemned to death for no other crime then for that 
he was a catholike Priest. When these had beheld the generous 
constancie of the designed Martyr and his chearfulnesse amidst so 
many calamities, they fell downe at his feet & kissed his hands, his 
chaines & the ground that toucht his sacred footsteps, desiering his 
benediction & vrgeing him incessantly with (p. 21) many entreaties 
that whatsoeuer he stood in need of he would enioyne them to 
procure it All which things the heretickes & Jaylors behoulding, were 
stroocken in amaze through this feruerous zeal & faith of theirs : This 
was on* Sonday in the euening. 

Afterwards retouming home, they, as they are of wounderous 
devotion & constancie towards God & the catholike faith, expose the 
Blessed Sacrament, institute supplications & keep a vigil throughout 
the whole night in prayer before the same, earnestly beseeching 
Almightie God to strengthen with his grace this their fellow partner 
of the Catholike communion, & make him inuincible against all

Catholike king hath been powered out vpon the earth for the glorie of 
Christ, whose prayers also in heauen to God most grateful! he dare

also that if any aduerse chaunce did happen to this auncient fortresse 
against heretikes constituted vnder their eyes & conspect, the enemies 
of the faith would tryumphe, neither would they doubt but that the 
like destinies as happened to the mother might light also v]X)n her 
issue. Being therefore retoumed into his countrey with great honour 
as he wisheth & prayeth to God therefore, & being heighly re\*'arded 
for his Embassage vndertaken & effected in the name of Christ 
togither of his king, he would be sollicitous in as much as he was 
aUe to defend & preserue this colledge, & labour to his power as

that what hitherto hath been the minde and bountie of the Catholike 
kinjg, the same might also hereafter continue vntil the end. The 
which iavour, if he might be permitted to obtaine & receaue, he 
would repaye it largely mth aboundant thankes from heauen. And 
that if he might be so bould, neither the Maiestie of his puissant 
Monarch would terrefie him, a poore Priest, himseUe would begg the 
same. Yea rather because the prison, his chaines, his condemnation 
&. instant death for the faith, the which expects him at the gates, doe 
commaund him to be so bould, neither his Maiestie terrefie him so 
much, as his benignitie and clemencie doth intice him; therefore 
doth he lye prostrate at his royal feet hartily desiering & beseeching 
him that he would as a Sonn worthie of such a Father cbnserue and 
defend this worke which his magnificent Father had begunne. And 
least his prayers should be refused & despised, he would alledge his 
Father who but lately is raigning in heauen, as he trusteth, & tpgither 
all those troupes of Martyrs which that house hath brought forth, to 
be intercessours to the Sonn: (p. 34) but God he would place before 
his eyes as a most liberal rewarder of such a good worke, &. which 
would be most profitable to the Church. 

With shortnes of tyme, as it is woont, there increased to the 
Martyr pietie of spirit ; & now hauing been long vigilant and intentive 
in prayer, he expected when he should be caled forth to dye.^ On 
Munday therefore, about five of the docke in the morning he is 
caled for by the Sergeants & hangmen who without the doares stood 
guarding both sides of the hurdle which was tyed to the hc^setaile, 
wh^eon was spread a little strawe. This was opposite to the place 
where the other Priests & Catholikes were shut vp in, with a double 
gate in the night, but in the day with a single one that had wooden 
barrs plated ouer with Iron for them to see through & take in their 
sustinance, or to speake to the keeper in their wants. But now the 
keepers were commaunded to shut-to the outward gates, which I 
suppose was done to the end that neither they that were within might 
haue that comforte graunted them to see or speak, & bid the Mart]rr 
fare-well, or he to them. Notwithstanding he as he was with his 
hands tyed, casting his eyes towards the dore of his companions 
where there was a very litUe windowe that looked into the street, & 
giving them a salutation & benediction, togither with the signe of the 
Crosse vpon himselfe, kissed the hurdle, & so layed himselfe vpon it 
with his face towards the horse's heels, & in this manner was he 
drawne through the stony streetes vnto Tibume, a gallowes some two 
miles & more (p. 35) beyond the prison. 

Besides a great multitude of others, there were others that were 
English gentlemen Catholikes on horse-back, who accompanied the 
Martyr vnto the place of execution, many also of those Embassaders 
(amilie whom Catholike kings & princes haue in England, but aboue 
all were the Spaniards who mounted vpon goodly horses, rode two by 
two in a long trayne both before & on ech side of the Martyr. All 
these did the Sergeants vse most shamefully, to the end they might 
driue them away, for oft tymes they sharply would beat their horses,

& sometymes the riders themselves; who, nevertheless, by reason of 
their great multitude, gathered togither againe & accompanied the 
Priest bareheaded, and bowing them downe, prayed for him peace & 
constancie, but vnto themselves his benediction, the which he often 
did imparte vnto them; he made vpon them indeed though haidly, a 
Crosse, the signe of faith, but so much the more holy no doubt, by 
that it was formed with his hands bound. 

Without London there is a place in w^^ three wayes doe meet, on 
this there stands a Gallowes having three comers much nobilitated by 
the blood of Martyrs, though also it is true that many wicked persons 
for stealth & murder or the like crimes, being condemned at London, 
doe there end their life. This Gallowes at midnight before, the 
Catholikes had adorned & beset with garlands, flowers & brauncbes 
round about, & had strawed the ground vndemeath with bayes & 
sweet hearbs (p. 26) which if you had seene, you would have thought 
some solemn consecration of the place had been there celebrated, or 
indeed some great tryumphe, & not any punishment to haue been 
inflicted vpon a most innocent man. All the Catholikes here did 
reioyce & scarse could contayne themselves for ioy; the people of 
other kingdomes did wounder at the constancie & alacritie of the 
Catholikes of England that being wome ¥dth so many persecutions, 
should yet be so generous in mind as to triumphe in the death of 
those who were most deare vnto them. The executioners & Sergeants 
& publike ministers of Justice were abashed and dismaied, & fretted 
thereat, yea threatned those gentlemen that commended the fact; 
sometymes they cryed out. What monster is this? Will the papists 
worship this Gallowes which wee have made as they doe their Idol ? 
So hateful & odious a thing it is to the enemeys of the faith if so be 
any honour be exhibited vnto the most stout champions thereof. 

Now they had remoued the Priest from the hurdle & had sett him 
vpon the out, haueing put the rope about his necke they begine to 
pluck of his cloathes, when he casteth among the people his hand- 
kerchife, money, points, gloues, and such like guiftes, which euery one 
so greedily did catch & make so much esteeme of, that one of his 
kinn seeing nothing to fal to his share, cryed out with a loud voyce, 
saying, O Cosen Maxfilde, will you let me your cosen, goe without 
some smal guift or other from your hands ? These are most certaine 
tokens of his innocencie when as so many, not of the abiect sort, 
but men of sound and ripe iudgement doe esteeme of things of no 
moment by (p. 97) reason of the vertue of the giuer, & doe so much 
couet & desier them ; for there is none in whom is found any species 
of honestie that in the sight of all, will desier a vdcked felowne to 
bestowe a guifte vpon him, & much lesse to beg one of a traytor & 
an enemey to his countrey. 

There was present on horse-backe, I knowe not what heretical 
peacher, named Pourcase, who also, as it is reported, had written a 
ixx)k for the Atheisme against the romaine & catholike fait&4^ This

good-fellowe minister challenged, with a tumulteous clamor, him to 
dispute who nowe was at the point to dye & prepared therefore. The 
Priest of Christ reiected him, saying that he was not come hither to 
dispute, but to seal with his blood, as with a signet, the autoritie & 
faith of the Catholike Church. 

The minister because he refused the challenge, vpbraided him 
crying that he was rude & ignorant of all learning, & that he could 
yeeld no reason for his faith he professed. With that one of the 
common sorte stood vp & said Fie, get thou hence with thy calumnia- 
tions; as though the papists doe make their Priests such ignorant & 
vnfit men, & send them into this kingdome. But our Martyr more 
quietly answered the minister thus ; My freind, thou hast made tryal 
before now what I am in learning & schoole-disputation ; thou knowest 
also that these things are coyned by thyne owne braine: I beseech 
thee doe not before God & this people be-ly thyselfe, against me in 
any case especialy seeing thou art to give an account of these matters 
before the same tribund vnto which I am now to be presented as a 
witnesse that all these things are but meere calumniations, (p. 28) 
But the sensles minister was more instant & vrged further saying, that 
he would vndertake for to teach a block-headed dunce of twelve 
yeares ould for to knowe as much within fouerteene dayes as our 
Priest should. Then a certaine gentleman of the company swore with a 
great oath, To the end, quoth he, thou wilt performe on this condition 
thou promisest, I will procure thee forty schollers, & for cuery one a 
large stipend to be faithfully payed vnto thee. 

The behoulders had so compassed about the Gallowes that they 
pressed the Magistrate & Officers, but the Sergeants beating them 
backe, one of them strooke the Martyr's Brother a great blow, vnto 
whom he thus spake; If this man were as neere in blood vnto thee 
as he is to me, thou wouldst, though neuer so barbarous, take it ill to 
be beaten away from his company & embracement being a dying. 
Why, who art thou? answered the Sergeant I am, quoth he, this 
Priest's Brother ; he knew him therefore & bad him be of good cheare 
& goe neerer & take his Brother by the hand, also secretly to speake 
with him. 

Moreover from the tyme that this our Martyr was lead forth of 
prison vntil his death, his countenance was exceeding pleasant & 
chearful, as it becomelh such as are designed vnto Martyrdome, in 
so much that many protestants obseruing it, swore that he often did 
smyle for ioy and seemed to contemne his death now present at hand. 
Whatsomever he spake, he vttered with mildnesse & great courage. 
Now to the end (p. 29) he might close up the last and that most 

doubtless unjust, yet not without scms foundation in fact. Purchas treated of /i«

as '* the English Ptolmey/' has been of late severely criticised by Professor Laughton

happie period of his life, he turned himselfe to the multitude, (who 
were about fouer thousand persons, and amongst them certaine of our 
cheife Gentrie,) and spake thus: I, Coun trey-men, after many labours in 
studie vndertaken, retoumed into this my countrey with a mind not 
to peruert any, or to withdrawe them from their fidelitie towards their 
king, the which I alwaies coueted might be kept inviolable, euen with 
my blood ; but rather to reduce men's soules vnto the auncient faith 
of their predecessors & of the Catholike Church out of which there 
is no saluation. Neither did I intrude myselfe or came without any 
sending, or as a theefe & robber did I enter, as it is the condition 
& propertie of protestant-ministers so to doe; but I came fenced 
& confirmed with the sacred & that most heigh autoritie of the 
Apostolical sea from whence St Augustine & his company came in 
tymes-past, who first of all brought the light of the true faith into 
this kingdome of Saxons, being wrapt within the darknesse of Idolatrie. 
Judge yee now whither yee will accounte your first Apostles vnfaithfull 
& false traytors to this countrey, for neither can yee condemne me 
a man of the same faith & religion with them, confirmed with the 
same autoritie for to exercise the same function which they have 
exercised, but that also yee will accuse them to be guiltie of the same 
crime of treason as me yee have. Out of this exordium of his speech 
he seemed to be willing to add many things more whereby to cleere 
such Priests as are in England firom matters of treason, as also to 
shewe that that faith which our English now cal the ould religion, is 
(p. 30) the only saluation of soules, but the Shyreve commaunded him 
to silence, & the hangman to execute his office. Then conuerting 
himselfe to God he earnestly prayed him that he would protect the 
king, queene and royal progenie, togither with their kingdomes & 
people, that he would driue away & expel from them all euils as well 
spiritual as temporal, that liveing here in peace they might at length ^ 
enioy an eternal happines. He prayed likewise for his persecutors 
forgiuing them this their sinn against him, & confessed that he forgave 
all those willingly who had any hand or counsel ^n this shedding of 
his blood. Twice or thrice he gave his benediction vnto all that were 
about him, which the greatest part receaved with their heads vncouered 
& inclined downe. At last lifting up his eyes & hands towards 
heauen he inuocated the diuine assistance, the Catholikes aideing him 
with their prayers & teares, of which I am an eye-witnesse. But 
whilst he repeated often amongst others this saying: In manus tuas 
Damine cammendo spiritum meum ; vnder this prayer some of them 
drew from vnder him the cart wherein he stood & so left him hanging 
at the Gallowes. By & by the Sergeants were moueing their halberts 
to cut the rope, that so leaping downe on the grounde half-aliue he 
might feel the greater paine by their disboweling of him. But many 
of the Gentrie taking this hainously cryed out against them, saying it 
was barbarous & tyrannical to search with knife & hand the entrals 
of a liue man ; they should therefore let him hang vntil he was quite 
dead: (p. 31) wherefore after he had hung a quarter of an houer, the 
rope being cut he was disboweled, and his hart togither with al the 
rest of bis entrals, were cast into a ficr thereby; but his body quartered 



4^ ' THie imp Alf# ilAM»«Oiltt 

infotler'paits ft his head cut froia thie body wei^ all buried ne«e 
vnto the Gallowes. Whilst all these things were in acting, wee Catho- 
likes who had before implored for him the diuine assistance, did now 
beseech him, as being arived at the hauen of glorie, to render by his 
prayers the eternal maiestie propicius ynto vs. 

The Magistrate had proclamed vnder paine of imprisonment, that 
none should touch or presume to take with him any of the blood or 
flesh of the Priest, or so much as the strawe that was sprinkled with 
his blood, or any diing of his garments. Neither yet could they looke 
so narrowly to this comaund of his, but that many did expose them- 
sehies to the daunger of imprisonment to the end thejr might departe 
rich with such holy pledges & carry them away to their houses. 

The same morning & same place, thirteene other male-factours 
were hanged for other wickednesse. But when the martyrdome of the 
Priest was ended, almost al the whole multitud departed, as disdaining 
to be present at the deathe of others. Also very early in the morning 
before that our "Martyr was brought out of the prison, they had 
pronided a wooman who had kill^ her husband, to be burned in 
Smithfilde, to the end they might withdrawe many of the spectatours 
from this our tragedie; but all in vaine, (p. 32) for all that were of 
any condition & unto whom their necessarie businesse could give them 
leaue, did accompany the Martyr ft guarded him on each side vpon 
horses, others had occupied places in the streetes, others to see him 
dye went before into the fieldes. For naturally wee esteeme no sight 
more fietmous or goodly then to see a man, singular for his merits ft 
pietie, but compassed with most bad fortune to fight nevertheles 
with a most valiant ft heigh courage of minde, for there are battels 
fought which no doubte shall haue happie euents; there euery most 
paineful labour is a most ioyful matter of glorie; there to dye is to 
rise etemaly, ft there to merit to dye is the beginning of a life most 
fluent with the fellowship ft participation of all good things. 

The woonted fruits ft benefit of soules followed by this Martyrdome, 
for many by this example were inflamed to undergoe the like ; others 
made more courageous in their faith; those who wauered were con- 
firmed, who before beleeued not, now were moued to embrace the 
Catholike faith. To conclude, the tesrimonie of our true faith is seene 
for the most part vnto all, to be renowned, famous ft most firme : wee 
are brought indeed into these tymes that vnto many, most frequent 
examples are shewen of such deuorion ft constande towards God ft 
the Catholike Church. 

I cannot keep silent the singular pietie ft botildnesse of a certaine 
woeman. Some gaue vnto the Shyreue thanks for that he permitted 
the Priest to hang vntil he was dead; but she supposing also that 
thanks ought to be rendred by her, but vnto a better Maister, ft for 
a greater benefit, cryed out so that all might heare her; (p. 33) Gloria 
in Excelsis Deo ; for the Conuersion of England ; for the Conuersion of 
England. Certainly it seemed vnto Uiis pious woeman that next after 
the passion ft merits of Christ, such stones as were pulled by schisme 
away firom the Church, could not be conioyned againe by any other 
lime or iMrttr then by thesacied blood of theManyrsof Chritl; nor 



or yn( MAxrii^th; piftfei^'* 47«' 

could it be but that the earth being sowed & watered therewith most 
abundantly should in short space bring forth most delightful fruits of 
the true Catholike faith, togither with such solide vertues as therence 
doe proceede & bud forth. 

The Magistrate & Sergeants had vnderstood that Catholikes were 
very earnest & desierous of [the] holy Martyrs reliques. Therefore to 
deceaue them of their hope, they open a pit of a wounderous depth 
& therein cast the tome & severed body, & vpon it they laye two 
other putrified carkasses of two malefactors that had layne stincking 
in rottennesse & w^ a mounth before they had hanged & buried 
vnder ground; then upon these they pyle those thirteen bodys that 
were scene that day put to death, & so at last covered all with a 
great heape of earth, supposing by this meanes none would be so 
bcMild, or rather so mad, as Siey thought, to bestowe so great a 
labour, & to feel those stenches in digging out so many carkasses as 
there were put in, knowing it withall to be forbidden on paine of 
death. Notwithstanding the deuotion & bouldnesse of the faithful 
ouercame the counsel of the heretikes, for being inuironed with 
darknesse & defended with a strong arme, they dig forth the members 
with the head, & carrie them away to be kept with honour & 
veneration. 

It was reputed a wonder (p. 34) or indeed the prouidence of 
Almightie God, for when they had laboured al night & yet had not 
obtained their desiers, the white and beautiful dawning of the day 
appearing, did oppresse and terrefie these pious theeues, & fearing the 
morning labours of the husbandmen, as also the multitude of the 
passengers on the heigh way, their harts failed them & altogither 
despaired of ever obtaining what they desired. When therefore this 
they meditated onely, & how they might betake themselves safely 
into the citie, behould sodainly such a misty darknesse from aboue by 
the interposition of a most thidce cloud did compasse them, as that 
more through the vse of their eares then their sight they discerned 
on another. Being therefore thus secure of the diuine presence, they 
make an end of what was lefte of their labour; they dig forth the 
reliques and retoume ioyful & enriched with those sacred pledges. 
When they had now placed them in their houses out of all daunger, 
the mist straitwayes was dispersed as if it had thus onely serued 
with its darknesse to hide that pious thefte. God is woont to moderate 
every thing with that sweetnesse, that, whom he doth crowne with honor 
& glorie in heauen, the same these dumbe Elements & intercourses of 
things might waite vpon on earth, & this to the end he himselfe might 
be admirable in his Saints, & wee truely sing that of the psalmist 
Nimis honorati sunt amid tut Deus^ nimis confttrtmtus est prindpaius 
earum, — "Thy freindes, O God, are become honourable exceedingly, 
their principsditie is exceedingly strengthened.'* 



After that the Martyr was condemned he had begnne an Epistle the whieh he 
could netter absolue, by reason of many resorting then often vnto him, as also the 
Sergeants searching. Notwithstanding wee thought it worthy, least it should be lost, 
to add the fragment as a testament of the most holy Man,

APPENDIX. 



Six Original Letters op the Martyr 
and an account of his reucs. 

FiTC of the leren autograph letters here printed, are now in the Archives of the 
See of Westminster, and have not yet been pabliaiied, or at least not integrally. 
Letters II» V, VI, and VII are kept apart in a small portfolio. The third and 
fourth are at St. Edmund's College, Ware, and have been printed by Dr. Burton in 
The Edmundian for January, 1903, but not in the original spelling in which, with his 
kind aid, they now appear. 

As might have M«n expected, they illustrate the generosity, piety and amiability 
of the Martyr in a way whicii no biographer could possibly do. They are, however, 
written with a certain studied obscurity, usual in Catholic correspondence of this 
date, for there was always the danger of a letter being intercepted, and proving fiital 
both to writer and friends if its meaning was too clear. A certain disaplina arcani 
was therefore used ; Catholics were generally mentioned under fdgned names, and 
Catholic institutions of all sorts are alluded to very indefinitely. This was found to 
be as a rule safer than the use of ciphers, which at once attracted attention and 
raised suspicions, even where they were not understood. Letters like our Martyr's 
mifiiit seem at first glance to contain no secrets at alL Nevertheless, the difficulty in 
onderstanding them is greater than appears, and a few words of introduction to each 
will be appropriate. 

The letters begin with the return of Mazfield from Donay. He landed, be says, 
on July 22, 161 5, at Ratdifie, a riverside hamlet, the name of which has gradually 
vanished since the fire of 1794. Limehouse Docks have swallowed up much of the 
site, and the once celebrated Ratcliffe Highway is now lost in the prosaic name of 
Commercial Road. The Martjrr at once oetook himself to a Mr. Harries, a priest 
and a prisoner in the Gatehouse, evidently "the most intimate friend" mentioned 
in the life, and, as apfiears Orom the close of thit letter and from Na IV, an inter*

mediary between Maxfield and the Seminary at Douay. When the records of this 
period have been better arranged, we shall no doubt be able to identify him and 
most of the other persons referred to, though at present I cannot ascertain who he 
was, and believe the name to have been an alias. 

As Maxfield thinks it necessary to explain why he has stayed in London, we 
may perhaps assume that his original plan was the usual one of returning to his native 
county, in this case to Staffordshire. But he did not at first find "an opportunitie 
to traffic in his trade,** that is a vacant post or chaplaincy. So he patiently "set 
up his staff" in London because of certain business, and then found other good work 
to his hand. 

The business was in reality not his, but that of his correspondent, William 
Ferrar. This man afterwards rose to some distinction among the secular cler^, and 
was appointed their "agent** at Rome. (Dodd, Church History ^ vol. ii, p. 3^.) At 
present there were two cousins of his, Marie and Anne Golding, who desired to be 
nuns, though, because of the above-mentioned need of secrecy, this word is not once 
mentioned. The Goldings belonged to the Nottingham fainily of Coulston Basset 
The eldest brother, Edward, whose marriage with Eleanor Throgmorton is men- 
tioned later, was the first baronet of that line. In his old age he beaime a Capachin, 
and died at Rouen. Frances is mentioned in the Visitation of 16 14 (Harleian MSS.» 
1555 and 1400) as his eldest sister, of whom we now hear that she has marri^ a 
vounger son of the great Yorkshire family of Ingleby. Judging firom the tone of 
her conversation with our Martyr, she seems to have been a l^otestant, though "by 
nature a right Goulding.** He more or less reconciles her with the idea, vmich at 
first seemed " impossible," of the sisters becoming nuns, and hoped that he might 
be able to do her more good later. 

Marie and Anne both entered convents, Marie among the Carmelites at Gravelines, 
where she was professed in 161 7, being then 22 years of age, and was afterwards 
transferred to Aire. As to Anne, it would seem almost certain that she is to be 
identified with the Ursula Golding of whom a fairly long history is told in the 
Chronicle of St. Monicc^s at Lottvain (Ed. Hamilton, 1905, vol. i, p. 197), the more 
so as Sister Mary Alphonsus, to whom I am indebted for most of this information, 
tells me that from certain variants in another MS. copy of their chronicle, she 
surmises that Sister Theresa (as Ursula or Anne afterwards became) had actually 
been with the Carmelites before she came to Louvain. 

The connection of Ferrar with these Goldings I am unable to determine, nor 
that with "cousin Hughesbies," nor with the " two good cousins with you.*' (5«^ 
Letters HI and IV.) It would also be interesting to find the name of Ferrar*s 
brothers. The first mentioned of them, though he remained "steefe** in his 
Protestantism, was very kind to Maxfield, becommg an intermediary for his letters, 
and even visiting him when in prison. The " Panin's eamine of bakine eatine att 
Pimligoe *' would seem to be a sort of quaint password from brother to brother, 
piresamably referring to some joke or adventure. 

In the latter half of the letter comes a lament "concerning my boocks.'* 
Perhaps there is nothing more here than meets the eye ; not improbably, however, 
his whole store of vestments and "church stuffe** may have been racluded under this 
title. The reference to the " verie wise, prudent and religiose man, Mr. Carie,'* is 
probably also of greater importance than it may seem to be. The Martyr has 
niUierto made no allusion to the Archpriest and Assistants, under whose jurisdiction 
he had now passed. Perhaps one of these dignitaries is here alluded to, possibly 
Collington, wno is mentioned again in Letter VI. 

The following letter is from the Westminster Archives, voL xiv, p. 429:—

was commended ; y* w**»out impeachment of a thankful! and grateful! 
mind I cannot but impute it to his sacred protection, in whose power 
I euer repossed a firme hope^ qma nunquam derdinquit presumentes 
in se. Hetherto I liaue no opportunie to trafficlc in my trade, but 
most liaue patience, as my frends te!l me, till time worke a way. I 
haue takin a Chamber in the Strand, wher M' Harries directed me ; 
fhigall I most be, yet honest means I hope I shall not want ; I haue 
resolued here to sett vp my stafe till micheelmasse terme. 

I haue M*^ fiarare bine more carefiill of the busines in y' Cosins

his brother made good remonstrance. He vsed me as kindly as I had 
bine his Brother. I put him in mind of the Parsins gamine of 
bakine eatine att Pimligoe. 

I was lywise w^ y' Cosin Frances Go[uldling now a married wife 

to a Yorkshier Gentleman of ^ hundred a yeare. I saluted her 

from her sister Marie who writt to her by me, and certyfied her of all 
her sisters courses and resolution, as M*^ Marie willed me. Whereatt 
she sometime did sigh saying, Alas will she take such a course and 
not retume ? and much other good conference we had of her and her 
sister Anne, att w<^ she euer feched a deepe sigh : but I finding her 
by nature to be a right Goulding, and my selfe well disposed to talke, 
did vnfould to her their contentment and y^ albeit their worldly freinds 
might thinke them fooles to [? disposses] them selues of all good 
fortune and preferment ; yet soe Christ fooles y^ thei would not change 
their estates to be made Queens of the earth ; at w<^ she seemed to 
be amazed as vnpossible, yet exceeding glad to heare so well of them, 
she meaneth to writt backe to them. I shall peraduenture haue further

IL 

The next letter, if read without tny comment, will seem a somewhat obscure 
effusion. The clue to it is given by Bbnop Challoner, who writes under the heading 
of Robert Sutton (the first of the two martyrs of that name) : *' I have at present 
before me a letter written from England by Mr. John Cleaton, an eye-witness 
[Challoner did not know this was an alias of our Martjr], concerning a person 
possened by a furious devil, who was wonderfully delivered by the relics of 
Mr. Robert Sutton." Challoner had before him not our original, but a copy sent 
him by Dr. Alban Butler, which is still preserved at Oscott Coll^, Birmingham, 
and ot which a copy has been kindly supplied me by the Rev. C. E. Evans. I 
cannot discover whether the Martyr ever sent the fuller "notice and intelligence" 
of the afbir, as he ''hoped'' to be able to do, or whether, if he did so, it sdll 
survives. 

The most interesting point seems to be the connection between Maxfield and 
the martyr whose relics were used during the exorcism. The venerable Robert 
Sutton had been arrested, it seems, while visiting certain Catholic prisoners in 
Stafford Gaol, and amongst them, William Macclesfield (or Maxfield), our Martyr^s 
fiither. On this Sutton was condemned and executed, and Macclesfield sentenced 
to death, a sentence which was afterwards commuted to imprisonment for life, and 
this, in turn, led to our Martyr having been born in prison. It is therefore easy to 
conjecture with what earnestness he would have assistea at the weird scene, to which 
here, under the disciplina arcani of which we have spoken, he can only vaguely 
allude. 

The mention of the relic of Sutton is also of interest, because it is highly 
probable that the identical relic b actually preserved amongst us stilL Father John 
Gerard relates that when one of Father Sutton's quarters was carried off by Catholics 
from the place where it had been exposed, it was found that the thumb and fore- 
finger, which had been anointed at his ordination, remained intact, though the rest 
of the bones had been picked clean by the birds. Father Gerard (who oy the way 
differs from the above quoted authority as to the place of Sutton's arrest, and states 
that it took place "in the house of a relative of mine") obtained the thumb, had 
it enclosed in a fine reliquaiy, which, with Gerard's authentication, is still preserved 
at Stonyhurst Colltf^e. Writing from abroad in 1630, Gerard says the relic was then 
still in England. \Acts 0/ En^ish Martyrs^ pp. 323-326.) It may therefore have 
been the identical relic referred to by Maxfiela. 

There exists also a smaller relic of the same martyr, a piece of bone 1} inches 
long, with the contemporary inscription, '* A reli(]ue of B. Fa. Sutton Mar.," enclosed 
in a silver reliquary, about 3 inches long, inscnbed '* Ven. F. Rob. Sutton Mar.,'* 
which belonged to the Blundells of Crosby. 

The names of Edward Johnson, who conducted the exorcism, and of Mr. Smith, 
who inauired into it, I have not been able to identify. In Letter IV he speaks 
again ot *' Mr. Edmonds, with you called Johnson," of whom ''the world ringeth." 

The letter is addresed to Mr. Mathew Pemberton #r Penberton, an alias for 
Dr. Kellison, of whose relations to the writer more must be said under Letter V. 
There is no date, but the mention of a letter from Kellison, shows that a month or 
so must have elapsed since Maxfield had come to England. 

The Oscott copy is found at page 339 of a volume with the title in Dr. Kirk's 
hand, " Alban Butler's ColUcti^ for Bp, CkalUmer's Lives of Missionary Priests. 
Given me by Charles Butler, Esq. The copy is not in Albian Butler's hand, but 
he has added the headline, *' From an origiiuU letter without any direction."

A great change has come OTer our Martyr since the last letter. He was anested 
on November ist, and has now passed three weeks in prison. Nevertheless, he 
begins with a joke, was "verie merrie,*' and "never better content," for his cause 
made " the pressure of his prison verie pleasant" His lament is for the loss of his

"church stufTe" and missal, and he begs Farrer to send him another. In the next 
note we hear that the missal has been sent, though Maxfield had not yet received it 

He complains also of being "polled" by tne prison keepers, and in the next 
note speaks of their " greedy exactions." The proof is clear. The regular fees for 
the Gatehouse charge in 1603 were 12s, 4d, the week for priests and ix)orer prisoners, 
and 16s. ^, for the well-toHlo, 3|c so that the charge of 20. a week imposed on our 
Martyr would seem to be exactly twice as much as could be justified. In his last 
letter Maxfield calls himself the "poor debtor" to Kellison, and the words seem to 
have been em|>loyed in their literal sense. Presumably he had to draw on the 
generosity of friends for his sustenance in prison. 

" Y' M'" seems to mean Your Master, i.e. Dr. Kellison, the President, to whom 
he probablv wrote by the same bearer. Mr. Bamame Mounke, the pursuivant 
Bonnie, and Hierome, Canterbury's man, are all unknown quantities. Mounk may 
perhaps be not a name, but a descriptive epithet, signifying that Mr. Barnham was 
a Benedictine. 

Good Mr. Farrare, 

Al health to y' person and libertie to me. I am now a 
poore prisoner att the Gatehouse, where y" may be sure to find me.

So far from ^tiling under the strain of imprisonment, the Martyr's spirits have 
now risen higher still. "This night" (words wnich indicate that the letter also was 
written at night stealthily) he has l)ecn cheered by good news from Dooay. The 
college had of late come under the vigorous administration of Dr. Kellison, Maxfield*s 
hero, and we may suppose that some new benefit of his rule had then declared 
itself. With regard to affairs in England, he was ''at the height of hopeful expecta- 
tion, for that boides Catholics are strongly confident, even the pillars of protestancy 
shake with fear, and, I hope, shortly will ruinate." It is hard to conjecture what

Socuty, together with the oootinuatioo of the Tower bills. 



or MR. ItAXnSLD, PRIB8T 5$ 

the Martyr had in mind here. The immediate future did not justify his hopes, and 
it was not for some years, when the n^odations for the Spanish match were well 
advanced, that the lot of the Catholics improved. On the contrary, the persecution 
was then nowing sharper ; blood had b^n to flow again on the scafTolds, and he 
was himself to suffer soon. 

Still, there were some grounds for the Martyr^s anticipations. Queen Anne of 
Denmark was becoming more earnest in her Catholicism, 3|c and King James had just 
made up his mind to prosecute the match with Spain. We have already seen in 
the Life and at the end of the first letter how much importance Max field attached 
(and rightly) to the intercession of foreign Catholic powers. 

Several of the persons to whom he here commends himself, can be identified. 
"My most dear Master Mr. Pemb." is of course Dr. Kellison. <*Mr. Rosse with 
all of your ranke," vrill be the same as the Gulielmus Rosseus who, with seven 
others, was of the same " ranke " or standing at Douay as Farrer, and had been 
ordained priest with him. {Douay Diaries^ p. 21.) *'Mr. Lowe and his sons*' (or 
at least the sons), will be the Gulielmus Lous and Joannes Leus [sic] mentioned in 
the same place. " Edmundus Stratford ** also occurs, but he is perhaps too late to be 
identified with " Mr. Starford." 

Rd. Sr. ^•^'^• 

This night I saw a letter of y" to Mr Harries wch gave me 
surely great cause of comfort to understand y' matters wth y" are come 
to so good an issue, and I hope God will verifie his pmise patientia 
pauperu non peribit in fine. Long we have suffered an almost un- 
supportable burden both here and ther, but I hope ere long our 
sorrowes will raeete in a point of joyfull exultation, for as y" writt, 
things goe well w'^ y", so certainly here matters were never att y* 
height of hopefull expectation as the are now. For y' besides Catholikes 
are strongly confident, even the pillers of protestancy shake wth feare 
and, I hope, shortly will ruinate. Comend the matter to God in yr 
good prayers and expect awhile wth patience.

Perhaps the most significant sentence in the last letter was, "If I miss not in 
my purpose you shall hear ere long of my liberty.'' This open statement perhaps 
alludes to some attempt to gain freedom by open means ; but, however this may be, 
he soon after made an attempt to escape secretly, with the result already known, 
and now he writes as a doomed man. 

In Letters V and VI he bids adieu to Xellison and Farrer, the dearest friends 
he has in the world. Of his warm affection for Kellison every letter in this series 
speaks unaffectedly. In the first he is one "whom always I most esteem, no other 
ttian iny father." In the second he offers him "the remembrance of his love and 
humble dutie with all hearty thanks for his worthy counsel and admonitions." In 
the third and sixth the mention is not foigotten, though no comment is added. 
In the fourth, "my most dear Master." In this his devotion to his Alma Mater 
and to its most worthy President overflows. Never have they received a nobler 
tribute of praise. 

The youth here commended with so much kindly consideration, persevered in 
his vocation. Edward Kinsman, of London, was made priest at Donay on the 
24th of October, 1627. (Douay Diaries, p. 22.)

A Lttter to Mr. Harvey about the Martyr's Relics. 

The agnatitre of the writer (as well m one passage and three names) has been 
carefully blotted out All we can say is that he must have been a dependent 
(perhaps the chaplain) of some lord, the first letter of whose name would seem to 
be f.— except that there was no Catholic lord whose title had that initial. 

The late Father Stanton has endorsed the portfolio in which this letter is 
preserved with these words: "A letter enclosing a relic of V. Thomas Mazfield, 
viz: a flower which he carried in his hand to Tyburn. The flower is now in a 
rtd paper ^ and seems to be the calix of a pink." The packet of red paper, with 
its endosure, is still reverently preserved within the letter. 

The writer of this leUer was evidently unanure that the Maityr's body had 
been recovered by Catholics It should be here added that the Spanish Ambassador 
took it home with him when he left England. In Spain it was carefully preserved 
bv the descendants of the Count of Gondomar, and when, in recent years, Dom 
Gilbert Dolan re-identified the relics, the modem representative of that house gave 
him a huge share of the bones, which are now preserved at Downside.

No. IV. 
MEMOIR OF EDMUND MATHEW 

The account of the Edmund Pointz, vtre Malhew (Matthew, Mathews or Mathewes), 
here printed from a contemporary MS., was written purely "for edification." The 
biographer iust ^ves us the name of his hero, but otherwise says nothing as to who 
he was, and habitually calls him by a surname that was not his own. For what is 
boyish and merely human he has no care, which is the more to be regretted, as we 
are told that the boy " wanted not life and vigour at his play" (p. lo). The sketch 
is therefore devoid of much of the charm, which a more skilful artist would have 
impiarted to it, and the jewels of mystical language, with which our author has 
ornamented his pages, are in the rococo style, and can scxurcely be considered as 
an improvement 

Underneath these quaint mannerisms, however, there lies not a little of p^enaine 
history. It is perhac^ the earliest Englkh account of a Catholic boy of his yean 
which we poss^ Even the weak point of the book, its unskilful insistence on 
pietism, its over emphasised rejection of flesh and blood, tells us unmistakably of 
those hard times, when aloofness from this world was a stem necessity, when few 
other consolations could be counted on save those of prayer and spirituality. 

The notice also contains several references to the customs ana terms used in 
St. Omers Collie. These are interesting because many of them still survive at 
Stonyhurst, which maintains uninterrupted the school li^ which little Mathew so 
much appreciated more than two centuries ago. The Mass for health on the 
feast of St. Martina (the origin of which is, I believe, otherwise unknown), here finds 
its explanation {cf, MS., pp. i, i8, 20). There are many references to the "Sodality," 
in connection with which I may refer to the papers on the St. Omers Sodality in 
recent numbers of the Stonyhurst Magazine^ by Father Herbert Lucas, S.J. We 
find also the terms "composition days, as we terme them " (p. 20), "Study place" 
(p. 25), "school" for class in "Grammar Scole" (pp.6, 21, 30), before reaching which 
the boy passed through "little figures" (p. 16). \Vhether the word "line" is used 
for ' division ' on page 18, seems doubtful. There are of course frequent references to 
the somewhat Spartan discipline of those early days. Correction was given by 
"strokes over the hand ¥rith a rod" (p. 16). They went to bed at 9 and rose at 
5 (PP» >3» i^)» and during the heat of summer went to the "refuge," by which I 
suppose the villa-house is meant, of the English Jesuit Novices, which was at 
Watten, not iax off (p. 12). The boys were then (as ever) fond of cherries, Apples 
and sugar-plums (p. 18), and played much at ball and trap-ball (pp. 15, 19). The 
preparing " himself in thirty Psalms by his private diligence besides his schoole duties" 
gives us very much the same thing as the "extraordinary" of to-day (pp. 21, 30). 

Speaking Latin, and getting up Greek, "having neither Lexicon nor Radices 
Lingua Graca, books verv necessary for that enterprise" (p. 21), are forms of mental 
gymnastic, now happily abandoned, but "acting" (p. 43) is still deservedly held in 
honour at Stonyhurst 

It would also be well to gather together the data for determining the identity 
of the subject of our biography. Though his exact place in their genealogical tree 
remains uncertain, there can be no doubt that he belongs to the Mathews of Thurles, 
CO. Tipperary. This follows from the use of Pointz as his cUias, It was usual in 
those dSiys to use as an cUias the mother's name, or that of some other relative, and 
the Mathews of Thurles had intermarried with the Pointz family of Iron Acton in 
Gloucester. Captain George Mathew, son of Edward Mathews of Radyr [Reader] in 
Glamorgan, and progenitor of the Mathews of Thurles, Thomastown and Annfield, 
had gone to Ireland in 16 10. After the death of Thomas Butler, Viscount Thurles, 
heir to the Earl of Ormonde and Ossory, who was drowned 15 December, 1619, 
George Mathew married his ¥ridow Elizabeth, daughter of Sir John Pointz of Acton 
for Iron Acton), Gloucester. By her he had three children, Theobald, George and 
Frances, and eventually died at Thurles, May, 1673, aged 86. The daughter became 
m Poor Clare; Theobald, the heir, married a daughter of Sir Valentine Browne 



6o MEMOIR OF EDMUND MATHSW 

(ancestor of Lord Kennard), and he had an heir, George, who on the 6th of August, 
1677, was created LL.D. of Oxford, by the Chancellor, James, Duke of Ormonde, 
his uncle. This George is presumably the brother of our Edmund " Pointz.'' 

But Captain George also had various brothers : Edmund, who accompanied him 
to Ireland, and Anthony, William and David, who remained in England, the last 
named becoming Mayor of Cardiff. They seem to have all been Catholics. Thus 
it would seem that our boys may also have descended from Edmund, but the pre- 
sumption is that the "grandmother" mentioned on page 3 was the quondam 
Viscountess of Thurles. On pa^ 14 we hear that his mother was dead ; so when, 
00 page 10, we read of parents m the plural, we must take that word in die French 
rather than in the English sense. 

Edmund died on the 27th of September, 1667, after two and a half years at 
school, and was "scars past twelve years ould, when he came to College." Accordinjg; 
to this, he would have oeen bom early in 1653. His cousin George had died on his 
way home to Ireland, about 1666, and his brother George survived him. Perhaps 
this was the George Mathews who married Eleanor, widow of Lord Cahir. We 
also have on recoil that a George Mathew of Thurles married a Margaret Butler. 
Either of these (if indeed they are not the same person) might have been the George 
of our story. — Information furnished by Father Edmund Hogan, S.J., Mr. C. H.

As to the author's name I cannot form any conjecture. He tells us that he 
"thought himself obliged to speak some part of what he knew"— so that he was 
evidenUy fiimiliar with the lad, but in what capacity does not appear. 

The manuscript b a small volume, 5} in. by 3} in., in black pigskin, unlettered. 
It contains three small treatises — (i) A Spiritumll Observalion on the ground layd 
by Si I^natiusy 18 ff.; (2) Aspirations of a contrite heart; (3) F. Landsius's JJfe of 
Mary aumaventura ; (4) 7 he relation of Edmund Poins, It is written in one con- 
temporary hand, with great care, the words here in italics being in red. The copyist 
was perhaps a foreigner, for he (or she) writes 'prouocque' for 'provoke' (p. 12), 
which an English person would hardly do. Some words are, if I may say so, ultra 
English, as 'dimb' for 'dim' (p. 30), ']rused,' 'yumour,' for 'used' and 'humour,' 
and 'wrater' and ' wrather' for 'rather.' 

At the beginning is written, "For the use of S'' Hellen with leave of Supe- 

riours." At the end, **This Book belongs To Sr Hellen." In one comer, in 

L. 9 
another hand, 7=oZf perhaps an old library mark. If a date, its coincidence with 

the French Revolution seems significant. The volume belonged to the late Father 
Tohn Morris, S.J., and is now in the Library of the Postulator of the English 
Martyrs at Farm Street. J.H.P. 

A RELATION OF WHAT WAS OBSERVED

2J of September^ in the 

yeare i66j. 

Our English Seminary 
at Saint Omers, hath been very happy for the good example and 
vertuous Conuersation of three Youths of the family of the Mathews ; 
which is their true name, borne in Ireland and sent hither for their 
education. Two of them where Brothers, George and Edmund, who 
took heer the name of Poins, the third their Cosen German was 
George Mathews. The 2 Georges being dangerously sick in the 
bqgining of the yeare 1666 where very strangely cured by the inter- 
cession of the glorious vii^ Martyr S"^ Martina whose sacred 



MKMOIR OF £DMUND MATHSW 6l 

relicques, that had been kept obscurely in our Sodality began about 
that time to be taken notice of, and to bee held in great honour and 
esteeme. George Mathews (for of George Poins who is living He 
forbeare to sp^dce) after so signal a favour received from his good 
Patronesse, it is wonderfull how grateful! he showed himself vnto her, 
and although he alwais had been very exemplar in his Conuersation, 
yet after his recouery he seemed to breath a new aire, to haue more 
lofty thoughts and to becom quite an other man. But nothing was 
so (p. 3) remarcable in him as a most louely and candid innocency 
and simplicity, which gaue occasion to him that gouemed his Con- 
sdens not onely often to say of him, but also to write once in 
Confidence to a freind, that he thought Almighty God woold soone 
call that youth to heauen, for that he perceiued him dayly more and 
more transformed into that happy and innocent state of Litle ones 
whom our Sauiour sais the kingdom of heauen belongs vnto: And 
so it fell out, for not long after when he was in perfect health, being 
caled back into his Country much against his will (for he desired to 
end the Cours of his studdies heere) he fell sick at London or 
wrather^ in the way at Ostend, where he expected a long while a 
secure passage and although he was on the mending hand when he 
departed from London to Ireland, yet the diuine goodnesse that 
pleased it self much in that precious soule woold not expose it to 
the hazard of this wicked age. 

The Letters that caled George from S' Omers intimated that in 
all probability the other two where soone to follow him, which afflicted 
them both very much, and litle Edmunds zeale proceeded so far as 
to say he woold not go if he were sent for, though being aduised by 
the Father to whom he expressed this resolution, that he was to obey 
his Parents, he presently conformed him self to Gods will and was 
reddy to do what his Parents should determine concerning him. 
Yet he wrott by his Cosen (p. 3) vnto his Grandmother, beseeching 
her to diuert his Father from his designe of taking him thence. Our 
Lord heard the prayers of both the brothers, for hither to they have 
not been sent for. And that litle Edmund might neuer exchange so 
good a place where in he found so great content for a wors, it 
pleased the diuine goodnesse, whose delight and aboade is (as a 
Gardeners is) amongst Lilys, to transport from the garden of this 
Seminary vnto the Paradise of heauen, this pure delicat and most 
fragrant flower, that it might neuer be in danger of being blasted by 
the pestilent aire of the World or nipped by the could frost of bad 
example. Of this Angel in flesh I thought myself obliged to speake 
some part of what I know. 

Edmund Poins fell sick on the 24 of September in the yeare 
on thousand six hundred sixty seuen, at half an hower after 5 in the 
morning whilst he was seruing the Common Masse (as they terme it) 
in the sodality : for the sweet Goodnesse of God woold inuite him to 
his Celestial Court on a Day^ at an Hower^ in a Plcue^ and in a 
function the most beseeming his pious yumour and disposition. The 
Day was Saterday particularly dedicated to the honour of the Blessed

Virgin Mary whom our Litle Edmund did tenderly loue, and confide 
in her as in his Mother, the Aazver was between 5 and six in the 
morning, the ordinary time alotted for our schollers to heer Masse in, 
which time he so exactly obserued that notwithstanding he was young 
and as tender as any Child in the house, (p. 4) yet in the sharpest 
winter he rose out of his bed Constantly with the rest, and not onely 
woold not of his owne accord, but not euen when it was offered him 
by the Prefect, he woold not sleep after that time. Yea, he often 
times vsed to rise at 4 of the Clock, preuenting by an hower the 
ordinary time. But whether he rose vp with the rest or where vp 
before^ and busy at his book, he disposed his affairs so as to be^ 
frequently the first in the Chappel a pretty while before the Clock 
struck, expecting the Priest that was to say masse. The P/ace was 
the sodality or Chappel of our Lady where the Blbssed Sacrament 
is kept alwais, and is wel furnished with pretious Relicques of Saints, 
in whidi place Passer inuenit sibi domum et T^irtur nidum siH: ' the 
Sparaw found a lodge and the Turtur a nest,^ This spirituall sparow 
was continually sweetly Chirping at his deuotions, and this litle Turtle- 
doue was solitaryly retired into a priuat Comer, mourning interiourly 
for the desire he had to bee vnited with God. And veryly you could 
neuer find him long^ to gether absent from this place, when the Order 
and Discipline of the house obliged him not to be otherwais imployed ; 
in fine for his function and exercise; at that time he was seruing 
Masse, which he yused to performe with such Contentment, alacrity 
and spiritual ioy, with such sweet, humble, and vnaffected modesty and 
deuotion, that Uiere was nothing (p. 5) more gratefull vnto him then 
to seme Masse, nor any more welcome to the Priest he serued, nor 
in fine did Domesticques or Externes meet with any more welcome 
or better spectacle, and more propper to delight edify and excite them 
to deuotion during these holy Ceremonies then when they beheld this 
pious Angel seruing holy Masse. Whilst then as I saied at this time 
and in this Place Edmund was deuoutly assisting the Priest, our Lord 
sent his messenger to him, which was a suddaine and sharp sicknesse, 
for to inuite him to the Kingdome of heauen, there to giue his maiesty 
thanks for his vnspeacable goodnesse and mercy to him, and to offer 
vnto him a perpetuall sacrifice of prayses. The sweet Child seazed 
vppon by a violent Feuer, fainted and became so weake that he was 
to be caried by his Companions from the Alter to the Infirmary. 
That day and the next following, which was sonday, he endured very 
great paine, hauing a Continual] Feuer, which notwithstanding on 
Sonday in the Euening began to relent, and a flux followed, which 
was troublesom to him that night, but on munday in the morning he 
was without a feuer, and the Doctour thought him out of danger, 
which exceedingly reioiced vs all, who had seen him the day before. 
In the aftemoone he had a Could fitt, but wee apprehended his dis- 
temper woold prooue no wors then a Tertian or quartan ague. But 
the burning feuer returned and was as violent as euer, affording him 
no rest or quiet all the night ; (p. 6) And towards morning it was 
iudged absolutely necessary to prepare him to death, [and] arme him 

i(^ MS.K{WiUUuf

with the last Sacraments of the Church. He was perfectly present 
to himselfe, and had the liberty of his tongue for holy Confession, but 
became speechlesse soone after: so that though the B. Sacrament 
where brought thither and he shewed great signes of reuerence and 
deuotion vnto it, wee durst not giue him the holy viaticum, he being 
so farre spent, and excessiuely disquieted by the vehement pains ct 
his approaching death. Wee apprehended him to be besides himself, 
and therefore held his hands whilst the holy sacrament of extreme 
vnction was administred to him, yet it was not necessary, for as soone 
as those sacred Ceremonies were begun he Composed himself^ and 
held the same decent posture vntill all was ended, lying as qxiietly as 
a gentle sweet Lamb. He was admitted into the sodality of our 
B: Lady, the day before when he was fully capable to vnderstand 
that great happinesse, for vnlesse it where in this extremity he must 
baue expected yet some Months for that blessing, by reason of the 
schoole he was in, for he was newly entered into grammer. His ioy 
to see himself a SodaJis which he had long desired, and patiently 
expected, was singular great, though I cannot tell whether the whole 
body of the sodality did not reioice euen more than he, for hauing 
this occasion (confiding that he woold recouer of his sicknesse) to 
adopt so worthy a member (p. 7) and enrich their Congregation with so 
precious a Brother, so Constant and assiduous a worshipper of the 
Saints, Patrons, and Protectours of the Sodality, so dear a Child and 
Client of their Queen and Mother, and so great a Seruant of the 
diuine Maiestie; he was also admitted into the Societie of Jesus if 
so be he where capable of it by his age, as himself thought he was, 
although his Brother and wee do much doubt it, for our Reuerend 
Father Rector had this power to admitt in and pro artUulo mortis^ 
in and for the hcwre of death those of this CoUedge y^ do desire this 
fauour, as our Litle Edmund had proposed his most earnest desire 
of it about a yeare before, but what soeuer was his age, I persuade 
my selfe that wee shall meet him in heauen a Jesuit in sinu 
Sancti Ignatij^ in the bosom of S' Ignatious^ in testimony and 
proof whereof our Lord caled him vnto him on the 37 of September 
the feast of S^ Cosmas and Damian, which is the anniuersary day of 
the Confirmation of the Society, and as it where its birth day, and 
that early in the morning about a quarter after 4 of the Clock, that 
he might begin his eternall blisse with that ioyfull solemnity; for the 
innocency of his life makes it probable that he had no purgatory or 
a very short one. And who can question but that he is one of those 
of whome it is written Beati qui habitant in domo tua Domine^ in 
saoila siBculorum laudabunt tc ^Blessed are they O Lord who dweO 
in thy housCy for euer and etur shall they praise thee,^ (p. 8) Seing the 
time he seioumed in this life, his principall studdy was to performe 
what our Lord tells vs he doeth principally require of man, Solicitum 
ambulare cum Deo suo^ ^to be solicitous and carefuU to walhe with his 
God.' He behaued himself to our Lord God as a dutifull Child to 
his dearest Father, minding what his will and pleasure was, seeking 
in all things to Content him, and standing in great awe of giuing him 
the least ofience ; for the purity of his b^ was so aie and singular^ 



64 MKMOIR OF EDMUND MATHSW 

which made him to detest amnem spedem malt, *al signe and appearance 
of sin or euil.^ I heard on say, he wondered what this Child could 
say or find to accuse him selfe of in holy Confession, so irreprehen- 
sible was his demeaner, and this was one that from morning to night 
did ouersee all his actions. But this seruant of God litle Contenting 
himself with what is commendable in the eys of men, entred deeply 
into his haert for to serch wat was displeasing him, and what pleasing, 
whose fauour and commendation he onely sought for. Wherefore 
before confession, which he frequented on the Eeue of euery festiual 
day almost through out the year, he retired himself into the quietest 
place of the Chappell where for aboue half an hower he examined 
his Consciens with so serious attention and application as if he had 
been euery time preparing to make a generall Confession of al his 
life ; of this practis not onely (p. 9) some of the most mature, and 
deuout schoUers tooke notice, acknowledging that they where con- 
founded by his example, but also a Father, who was not his Confes- 
sarious but had his Confession seat ouer against the place where this 
litle Angel was kneeling, was wont to obserue it, and speake of it, 
much admiring to see that recollection, and so staid, and attentiue 
application in a litle boy ; and said of him that he did sweetly force 
Almighty God to attend to him, and graunt him his request And 
yet, though he spent so much time in examining his consciens, he 
was not the least scrupulous nor long at Confession; for in a cleere 
light discouered he the least stains of his soule, and cleerely explicated 
what he had to say. This purity of consciens made him to be very 
wary in his words, as well for to giue noe boddy any offense, as also 
for feare of speaking a material ly. When he was asked any question 
he woold stay some litle while, and pause, before he woold answer. 
It was very rare to heere him positiuely affirme, or deny any thing, 
but his words where */ thinke so*: */ Aope I shall doe so* and the 
Like. A Companion of his offered him once some sweet meats; 
Edmund being resolued to deny himself that litle pleasure, desiered 
to be excused, and said plainely he woold not take them, but his 
Companion pressed him stil, and requested him for Gods sake to 
accept of them : neuer appeared more (p. 10) euidently the fear this 
ChUd had of God, for he was in a strange perplexity, and trouble of 
minde, not knowing how to come of without displeasing him : for to 
accept of that offer he durst not for feare of telling a ly, hauing 
absolutely said he woold not accept them, and yet to refuse it he 
made a real scrouple, being desiered to admitt of that small present 
for the hue of God^ which was a motiue to his louing haert sufficient 
to make him ron through fier and water. The conclusion was he 
besought his Companion to vrge him no more. 

From the desire he had of contenting, and fear of euer dis- 
pleasing the diuine maiestie sprong that exactnesse and punctuality in 
domesticall discipline and order, which euery one admired in him, for 
though he was but a child scars past twelue years ould when he came 
to the Coledge, and died within two years and a half, and wanted 
not life and vigour at his play, and in other occasions, yet neither 
bis Prefects, Maisters or others vnder whose charge he was, found 



MBMOIR OF IDICUND MATHKW 65 

reason in any place of the CoUedge, or at any time to reprehend or 
chide him for any immodesty, lightnesse, childishnesse, breache of rule, 
or any disobedience. 

What was said to him by whay of aduice or councell by those that 
had care of him to direct him in his studdies or other duties was to 
him a precept and command; so (p. ii) that those who where best 
acquainted with his disposition where very wary what, and in what 
termes they spoke vnto him, for feare of putting a burthen or 
obligation on that franck and free minde, alwais reddy at a word or 
signe, to obey whatsoeuer employment he was caled to by either the 
bell or voice of his superiour. 

He went cheerfully, modestly, and speedyly and applyed himself 
to his pressent duty, Utle minding what his companions whoold either 
say or da He was obserued sometimes to rise vp at the first toule 
of the bell, and when he perceiued afterwards that the signe was not 
giuen to call him away (for that litle boys, either by chaunce, or out 
of childishnesse, are pulling sometimes at the bell rope), to retume 
againe with great peace, and quiet to his deuotions, as if he had not been 
interrupted, whereby appears as weU his great punctuality in obeying 
at the least signe, as also his deuotion in not loosing a moment of 
that time which was permitted him to spend in prayer, where as most 
of his companions where already gon out of the Church. He was 
neuer heard to speake an vnnecessary word in times and places silence 
was exacted of him. And in real truth, considering his exteriour 
cariadge, and knowing the interiour of his soule, I am persuaded he 
woold haue suffered Martyrdome, if occasion had been offered, rather 
than voluntaryly haue transgressed any one rule, or order of the house. 
I know that in the refectory particularly some of his Companions 
(p. 13) not out of malice, or ill will to him, but out of a childissh 
frolick woold often solicit and prouocque him to speak, and to remitt 
some what of his angelicall grauity and modesty; but he continued ^ 
still to be the same, and with much meekenesse bore patiently, and 
seemed not to minde their impertinency. One thing he was much 
troubled at, that sometimes with apish gesturs, they forced from him 
a smile or litle laughter against his will Wherefore vntill he was dis- 
abused of his innocent error, he had a scruple as if he had offended 
much against modesty. This last somer which was also the last of his 
life, it being thought vnhoulsome during the heats for our schoUers to 
ly many together in the dormitorys, it was agreed vppon that some of 
them shoold lodge in the refuge belonging to our Fathers at Watten. 
The lot fell vppon that schoole in which Edmund was in, and it was 
a diuertisement gratefull to litle children to go in the euening to the 
Refuge, and retume to the CoUedge in the morning, their Master 
accompanijng them. Here although the behauiour of them was such 
as those Fathers of Watten that resided there where wonderfully 
edified and well satisfied with them, yet the great silence which is 
kept in our CoUedge at those howers was not exacted nor indeed 
could be there expected of them. But this (p. 13) angelical yuth like 
the Turtle, qui semper idem canity quia semper idem amat^ ^hath alwais 
tki same note^ becaus it keeps alwais the same Ume^ thought that in the 



66 HBMont or Ksmvm> mathsw 

obseruance of holy rules diere t>aght to be no difference, and kept 
silence with y« same rigour at the Refuge, as at the CoUedge. This 
their night aboad lasted about a month, during which time Edmund 
constantly went in y^ euening and returned in the morning with the 
same grauity and modesty as if he had walked in a holy procession: 
as soone as he came to the Refuge he went immediatly to the 
chappell, and there expected the saijng of Litanies of the Saints, which 
being ended he retired into his chamber and putting himself pressently 
vppon his knees by his bed side, continued so long at his prayer, 
that he had iust time enough to be in bed at 9 of the clocke, after 
which none was to be vpp. In the morning he rose vp early, and 
praied half an hower before his companions raised, and this practis 
he kept all that while, to the great admiration of his Master, who 
obserued, and eyed constantly his actions. 

His fidelity and punctuality was no lesse remarcable, as may 
appeare by this. A certaine Father once recommended to EDBfUND 
and his Brother George, the care of filling two holy Water potts, by 
which, a continuall presse of a numerous family passing to and fro 
euery (p. 14) one sprinckling himself, though they where often filled 
yet they were frequently dry and empty. The Pot George had care of 
IS very litle and emptyed almost twice a day. Edmunds was somewhat 
larger, but farther distant from the place where he was to fetch his 
holy water. Now from the time they where willed to take this care 
vppon them till Edmunds most happy death, which wants not much 
of 3 years, I do not tjiink there has been one day, wherein at what 
soeuer hower you had come, you woold not haue found both pots full 
almost ; and when they chanced at any time to be sick or otherwise 
employed, they recommended to some freind to supply that duty for 
them ; or one Brother performed it for an other, which argues a strange 
goodnesse and fidelity in these two Angels ; and which many wondred 
at, they where so dexterous in watching their opportunity to bring holy 
water when none or few where there pressent, that although they did 
this euery day and sometimes more then once, you woold hardly euer 
meet them doing it Edmund tooke his charge vppon him for his 
Mothers sake, for the good of her soule departed, and thought he 
afforded her some comfort and ease (in case she where in purgatory) 
as often as he carried holy water to that pot ; and [he] was obserued 
when he thought himself to be alone in the sodality to sprinkle also 
water vppon the grauestones of those that are buried there. 

(p. 15) This most sweet childe was solidly vertuous; He was truely 
mortified, humble, Obedient, patient and meeke. It happened once 
that as he was playing at trap ball in the Guarden, one of his 
companions much against his will strudL the ball full vppon his ey, the 
pain certainly was most intense, and woold haue drawn some whord 
of indignation, or impatience, from an vnmortified and impatient man. 
But this sweet Lamb immediatly pronounces Jesus, Deo gratias, 
and for to show he was not in the least offended at him, by whose 
hand the sad chance happened; looked vppon him presently with a 
most lovely, and gratious ey, knowing that he stood more in need 
of comfort then him selfe. And indeed he did more resent his 



MlllOUt OF BDMVhD MATHKW 67 

trouble then his owne smaert paine, and as soone as conuiniently he 
coold said a paire of beads for him. With the same or wrather 
greater meeknesse did he put vpp and dissemble other things, which 
he suffered as wee shall see afterwards. He had a horrour of the 
least faults, and a desire of the sharpest penalties. He chanced to 
come one day some what after his companions where setled to 
studdies, and the Prefect though he doubted not but that he had a 
laughfiill excuse ; yet for to try him for the example of others, with 
a graue and seuere countenance chid him for coming late, vnto whom 
he mildly replyed ^ray Father pennance me for my faulty and that he 
spoake it from his haert appears by that which he did another time ; 
for of his owne accord (p. 16) he went to the Prefects chamber and 
desired him to strike him five times ouer the hand with a rod, that 
he niight suffer sometimes for the souls in purgatory: a Pennance 
which I am confident woold neuer haue come into any mans head to 
impose vppon him, although he shoold now and then haue been 
ouerseen in his duty, being so obedient and tractable as he was ; and 
yet this tender child desirous to gather vp some leaues of the holy 
Crosse, and to communicat with our Sauiour in his passion persuaded 
the Prefect to correct him. True it is that whilst he was in litle 
figures, once bye mistake he was in danger of vndergoing the same 
pennalty, wherein for that his vertue did much appear. He sett it 
down as it is recounted by his owne schoole fellows, who do speake 
of it with great admiration. The Master vsed to give y« schollers 
a certaine exercise profitable indeed for them, but distastfull and 
tedious vnto those litle boys. He gaue it them out of a greek book 
which he willed them to bring to schoole, though none of tfiem woold 
bring it but Edmund, who was most punctually obedient to his 
Masters orders ; and although he suffred no litle persecution from his 
companions for it, who sometimes laughed at him, sometimes shewed 
themselues angry with him and threatned him, yet he constantly 
performed his duty, obeyed his Maister, and brought the book to 
schoole. One day some of those litle ones agreed amongst them- 
selues secretly to take away the book from him and hide it, as they 
did: such like (p. 17) passages wee reed in Surius in the lines of 
Saints; for not onely holy men suffer persecution by holy men, 
but also vertuous children (torn companions of their age. Then the 
master at lenght cals vppon Edmund for the book, who answered he 
had brought it with him to schoole, but that now it was gon, and 
knew not [what] was become of it, the master taking this to be but 
an excuse, spoke seuerely vnto him, and tould him that vnlesse he 
gaue him the book out of hand he was to expect a pennance. The 
good child fell a weeping and protested he knew not where it was; 
in fine the Master bids him go forth to the Prefect whose office it 
is to correct y« children. The innocent sweet child obeys forthwith, 
but as he was going forth, his companions who neuer wished him so 
much harme, rise vp and declare his Innocency to their Master, and 
bring forth the book ; so that Edmund was cleared ; though he woold 
not for all this absolue himself. For thinking it to be his fault that 
his Master had showed himself offended with him, after schoolsy

when all the schollers almost where mett to getfaer in their Masters 
chamber, he comes in, and before them all, faling vppon his knees, 
with many tears asketh forgiuenesse of his Master, for hauing putt 
him to trouble ; which argues profound humility to aske pardon when 
he had deseru^ praise for his heroicall obedience. 

(p. 1 8) Some time ^>efore his death he was mooued to mortify 
himself, and he yused of his owne accord some rigorous afflictions for 
the souls in Purgatory, which his ghosdy Father forbad him to vse any 
more. He was walking once with a vertuous companion on saterday 
in the evening, and vppon occasion of churries which they had had 
at supper, he said it was to sweet and delicious a fruit to be eaten 
vppon the Eeue of a Communion day. He tould an other companion 
that yused to cary aples in his pocket as he went abroad, and gaue 
him part of them, that he woold beare him company no more, if he 
gaue not ouer to proffer him apples. One woold ons haue bought 
of him the Plau he had, as they call it, in the line for to play at ball 
(a bargain very vsuall amongst children) for sugar plums. Edmund 
presently offers him his place but could not be persuaded to accept 
of the sweet pressent 

For about [a] yeare he abstained from drinking in the aftemoone, 
no litle mortification for a litle boy, and if at any time he went to 
drinke with the rest it was by obedience, in which vertue he was most 
eminent 

He had a great desire to rise in the morning at 4 of the clocke, 
for to pane time both to pray and studdie, and he did rise for a 
great while ; but being willed by his prefect to giue it ouer, and sleep 
till fiue, he obeyed him presently. 

He was not onely wonderfully exact and obedient (p. 19) in collegial 
discipline, but also very zealous and industrious to aduance it in his 
companions. Hence he woold take an innocent liberty to wame of 
their duty euen those aboue him both in their school and age ; which 
ordinaryly was taken well at his hands. One day as the schollers 
^f^^re all abroad and very eager at their play, their Prefect perceiuing 
It was likely to raine, gaue a signe for them to giue ouer their sport, 
and retume home before the ordinary time, whereat many grumbled, 
3Im| muttered very much, and vsed some vnbeseeming and cUsrespectfull 
^igcds: but litle Edmund sweetly and calmly excused and iustified 
tlie pcocwdings of his superiour, and when in requitall of his charity, 
\^ woMued from some of them very peeuish, and biting tants, bore 
m^ patiently and meekly, which was a strange check vnto 
oiE Ae»c companions, and made them to enter into themselues.

before, and not stood to their promise. When he came first to the 
house he had many good things of that nature giuen him, and of 
most of them, he disposed in this manner. Some other things he 
lent to his OMnpanions that desired to borrow them, and when they 
forgott to restore them, he lett them alone and neuer demaunded 
them againe. 

His Master obsenied, and admired that on CompasiHom days^ as 
wee terme them, when our schollers compound and make themes for 
places in their school, which in figures are very frequent, he neuer 
complained of the lenght or difficulties of the themes, neuer was 
troubled when he could not find words he sought for in the dixionary, 
or when he was so pressed and straitened for time y^ he could not 
finish, reuieu, or correct his composition before it was to be giuen vp, 
though it appeared by the inflammation of his countenance that he 
laboured at it as much as any one of the most eager of his com- 
panions, but he boare it all sweetly, and calmely, and when the Master 
thought fit to call for the themes, he gaue vp his immediatly as it was, 
not houlding back, or demanding longer time to correct or alter what 
occurred vnto him, for which small and litle things in i^pearance, 
how solid and grounded vertue is required (especially for to hould the 
same tenour in (p. 21) them constantly) they know best who are 
acquainted with iht yumour of schollers, especially of litle boys in 
such occasions. 

The like vertue he showed when he was put vppon the explication 
of a haerd book, a greek Author hauing neither Lexicon nor Radius 
Lingua grcua^ books very necessary for that enterprise ; and yet all 
this last vacation from schools, was this obedient child with vnfatigable 
labour, and yet with wonderfuU calmnesse and quiet of minde, 
plodding vppon such a book and hewing as I may say a rock. Those 
whom now and then he addressed himself vnto for help, did admire 
him, and some of his owne schoole, litle boys seeing his patience and 
constant perseuerance, where in a manner amazed at it, and confessed 
they should haue cast the book quite away, had they been in his case. 
But its hardly credible how our Lord did blesse his Labours aboue 
his owne and others expectations, for he gaue a wonderfuU good 
account of his profit by interpreting Dauids Psalter out of greek into 
Lattin and answering to hard and intrecat questions publickly in our 
Refectory euen the first week he was in graiher, I meane some 
Psalmes of the Psalter ; and when he fell sick which was soone after 
he had prepared himself in thirty Psalmes by his priuat diligence, 
besides his schoole dutys: which seemed not a litle strange to those 
that knew him. The innocency of his life, did sharpen his vnder- 
standing; his prayer for the whole community (p. 22) drew light from 
Heauen, and his obedience merited him particular assistance of 
Almighty God. 

Nor could sicknesse alter the constant temper and harmonious 
temper of his vertuose soule, for he excepted all paine and siknesse 
gratefully from the fatherly hand of God, and bare it quietly and 
patiently, permitting himself to be ruled by those who attended him, 
and submitting to seueral things much against his mclinations. He 



70 lIBlIOnt OF BDMUND MATHSW 

had a very weak stomack and could not, though he forsed himself, 
cate certaine meats which he saw probably woold be oflfered him wilst 
he was sick, he demaunded of his ghostly father how he was to 
behaue himself if such motiues shoold be pressented to him. He 
woold say sometimes to the Infirmarian, that was most carefully 
attending him, that he had nothing where with to requite his charity 
besides his prayers, which he woold offer vp vnto Almighty God for 
him. In his last, short indeed, but sharp sickenesse, he had a minde 
to g^tt out of his bed, and was preparing for it hoping to find some 
ease by sitting vp. But as the Infirmarian perceiued he was offering 
to rise, he tould him t'was better to Lay still; whereuppon he cast 
downe his litle armes vppon the bead and resting his head said 
Gods will, be don and neuer offered more to rise. In the same 
diseaa he said to some that where (p. 23) sitting by him, and took 
great compassion of him in those his excessiue paines: if I kannot 

JBNDtXRB THIS PAINE, HOW SHALL I SUFFER THE TORMENTS OF 

PURGATORY. 3 things afflicted him in this sicknesse, the one that he 
could not pray, the other that he thought he wanted patience, and 
was troublesome to the good religious Brother, that with charity 
assisted him, whereas notwithstanding his most sweet and calme 
patiens did wonderfully edify those tluit saw him, but becaus through 
the vehemency of his paine, he was forced often to tume himself from 
one side to the other, he often accused himself to those that where 
by of impatience. It is a comfort heere to reflect vppon the 
vniformity of Edmund with his Brother George, as before in health, 
so now in sicknesse. For when George a yeare and a half before 
this, lay sick of a violent feuer, his Ghostly Father comming to see 
him perceiued him to be saying his beads, which he held quietly in 
his hands vnder the bead-cloaths, and wondered that being in that case 
he woold pray vocally, and continue his accustomed deuotions, and the 
child complained that for the weaknesse of his head and importunity 
of troublesome fancys, he was almost half an houre in reciting 
one decade of his rosary. An other time his ghostly Father finding 
him to be in excessiue torment, caused by a paine in his side, besides 
his feuer; said vnto him, Gtorge^yau do heart this patiently (p. 24) far 
almighty Gods sake. To whom he replyed with tears. No indeed Father 
do I not. I woold faine be patient^ but the pain is so great that it wil 
not permitt me to be soe. And yet there he lay quiet, patient, resigned —

Vertue in children for the most paert is like to a Primerose in the 
spring, sweet, and louely, but so soft and tender that a morning frost 
nipps it and kils it. Many children are deuout, modest, dilligent, 
obedient whilst they are cherished with the warme sunshine of fauour 
and vogue with their companions; but if they chance to be persecuted 
for doing well, then their vertue can not with stand this bront ; it is 
gon. Litle Edmund was no such fading flower, he was wrather one 
of those soUid and happy trees vnto which the spirit of God compares 
a iust man, which keep their verdure no lessc in a rough winter then 
in a pleasant sommer. It is an article of Faith declared by the 
Apostle that all who will hue vertuously in Jssus Christ shall suffer

persecution! And this vertuous child suffered in paert, though he 
liued amongst Saincts. Yet no body can frame a true conceit of 
what he suffered, that doeth not know the sweetnesse of his yumour 
and disposition. In all the days of my life I do not remember to 
haue mett with one that was more wary, and had a greater feare of 
offending and displeasing any christian creature, then had this child. 
For (p. 25) if he did perceiue any one of his companions or whom- 
soeuer els to be disgusted and discontented with him, though he 
could not discouer any cause giuen on his paert, it was like a poniard 
driuen into his breast, which made his haert to bleed (the like is 
recorded of S^ Bernard, as I take it, in his youth) and he could find 
no rest vntil, discouering his grief vnto his Ghostly Father, he was 
assured by him he had no cause to bee troubled. But when he saw 
that for doing his duty, any body did take offense, and was displeased 
with him, onely God knows the affliction of that tender haert, to see 
him self the occasion of his companions grief and discontent And 
yet notwithstanding so deep a resentment, he woold haue quite broaken 
of with the most deare freind he had, rather then haue broaken any 
rule of the house, for to comply with him; as for example, to talke 
with them when silence was to be obserued. Our Lord permitted him 
for his greater meritt to haue a hard and long triall in this kind. A 
certaine yuth of a harsh and crabbed nature, quite different from 
Edmunds sweet temper, had a great desire to be insinuatly familiar 
with him, and requested one that had great power with Edmund to 
speake vnto him in his behalfl That meek Lamb was content to 
please any boddy, though I thinke he did not a litle mortify himself 
to keep him company, whose conditions where so rough. It happened 
(p. 36) not long after that they satt to gether in the studdy place 
this companion desirous to be a schoUer, and yet some what duU, 
requested Edmund with great eamestnesse to help him, which he did 
with singular charity at those times in which it is permitted to confer 
one with an other. But he, not satisfied with this, was still asking 
questions and proposing his doubts, euen at those times when all are 
to be quiet and to attend vnto them selues without speaking to any 
of their companions. Edmund who had rather a died then haue 
broaken the rule of silence took occasion sweetly to admonish him 
not to be troublesome at those times, as for other times when it was 
permitted he was reddy to seme him; notwithstanding this, that 
companion gaue not ouer to importune him to answer his questions 
and solue his doubts. And Edmund obliged himself inuiolably to 
obserue the rule of silence and not to answer so much as one word. 
Herevppon that churl became spightish and furious, changing all his 
former affection into spleen and malice and persecuted that litle 
Angell his benefactour, more outragiously then a man could beleeue. 
He striued to hinder him in his studdies, forged of him foolish 
storys and teals, and threatned to make him infamous amongst his 
companions, all which insolencys that harmelesse Doue void of gall 
dissembled and suffered with great Patience and meeknesse making 
his mone onely to Almighty God (p. 27) that knew the affliction of his 
haert and acquainting his ghostly Father with it not by way of 00m-

plaint but to aske his direction how he shooid carry himself in this 
affaire, for he desired him neither to rebuke him for it nor to speake 
to the Prefect that had care of the studdy place for to keep him in 
his duty. And whereas in manifesting his other troubles he vsed to 
speake dolefully now when he was speaking of this his persecution he 
snewed as well in his speech as countenance much cheerfulnesse and 
alacrity as if he had been glad of so faire an occasion offered him 
for to suffer something for &e loue of our Lord. This storme was 
not blowne ouer in few days but continued a long while, and I do 
think that sweet Edmund [n]euer opened his lips about it to any of 
his companions, vnlesse it where once to his Brother, who first of his 
owne accord had taken notice of that lads impertinent behauiour 
towards him, and euen from his Brother he concealed a great paert 
of what he suffered. 

Yet there was none more fit for him to consult with all in such 
troubles, then his Brother, not onely for the neare coniunction of flesh 
ami blood, but also for that they had been partakers together before 
in/ healing with rude and vnciuil Persons ; for at their first coming to 
the house, being of an.actiue and vigorous spiritt and very dexterous 
and skilfiiU in plapng at ball, where glad to play in their tumes 
amongst their companions, and it happened sometimes (p. 28) when 
they had gotten a place and weare reddy to begin the game, that 
some bould vnmanerly boy (for in a great community the prouidence 
of Almighty God euer permitts that there be some for to exercise the 
vertue and patience of the good) woold come to dispute the place and 
chalenge it as his owne, and their answer was with much meekenesse 
indeed i thought tt was my place^ but seing you say its yai^rSy you shall 
haue it. And thus they yeelded vp their right, vnlesse others that 
where by and knew the equity of their cause, did controle the sacy 
and impudent companion. A worthy Personage that yused to be in the 
guarden whilst the schoUers where there playing, sometimes obserued 
Uiis, and often spoake of it with great admiration and edification. 

But notwithstanding such encounters, which he met with sometimes 
from certaine crosse companions, he was generally and vniuersally loued 
by all, and his sweet innocent company was very much desired. The 
grauer sort of schoUers where glad to be with him, for that they vnder- 
stood his worth, and expected no small blessings of our Lord by 
conuersing with a litle Sainct, whose soule they knew to be most 
precious in his maiestys sight His equals and schoolefellows that 
were vertuously giuen, took him for their patteme and mirrhor, and 
profitted very much by his company and discours. And euen many 
of the least obseruant (p. 29) took delight to be with him ; and he was 
redy for all, but woold sweetly warne such as these y' vnlesse they 
became more deuout and modest and obedient vnto superiours he 
woold forbear to be their companion. A certain youth vertuous and 
of good example in his owne schoole loued him most deerly, and had 
a mind to keep recreation in a manner alwais with him ; litle Edmund 
liked also his company very well, for their discours was neauer but 
innocent, and pious, but hearing it was not so sutable to the custome 
of the house to consort himself so often with the same Person in 



MBlfOIR OF XDlfUMO MATHXW 73 

time allotted for recreation, he freindly and freely desired htm not to 
be vrgent to haue him so often for his companion. 

It was much that a litle boy of a most sweet disposition, gratious 
and good paerts vniuersally beloued and esteemed by all, yet was not 
fondly affected by any one; for the loue which all did beare him 
was euer with a respect and reuerence. Neither was he forward to 
insinuat himself into any mans affection, though out of true vertue he 
sought to content all. Our Lord seemed to be zealous of that purest 
soule, and took him away to himself when those talents, which migh[t] 
commend him more to the vogue and esteeme of men and conse- 
quently cause a lesse refind and spirituall affection, began to open 
and display themselfs, which hitherto for his age and loughnesse of 
his scool had (p. 30) not much appeared in him ; he began now to 
be looked on as the grace of the stage in acting. He was pretty 
forward for interpreting Greek authours and in all probabi[li]ty woold 
haue prooued a good disputant, for he had a pretty witt, and excellent 
iudgement, a cleare iterance and spoak lattin well for one of that 
scoole; and these are the Paerts that do most sett forth a youth 
especially of his age and bignesse in our seminary. But who knowes but 
y^ with Uiis exteriour lustre his inward lightnesse might bee obscured. 
For it commonly happens that the more one shines before the world, 
the more dimb and dull is the light which he casteth to heauen. 
This did our Lord preuent by taking away Edmund to himself when 
he had newly entered in Grammer scoole ; nor wood he expose so rich 
and radient a perle to be by prases of men sullied, which hitherto he 
had charily concealed and kept close from the eys and knowledge of 
him who had most right vnto it. My meaning is that this vertuous 
child did not know his owne worth, and litle thought there was any* 
thing extraordinary in him, much lesse that such treasurs weare con- 
fined to his soule; yea frequently when he merited most and did 
heroicall acts for the loue of God, he looked vppon himself in a 
manner as lost 

It is worthy [of] consideration (for to prays our Lord God in his 
mercys) how close his diuine Maiesty held this (p. 31) child by him, 
how he took him by the hand, and drew him after him in the strait 
and narrow path, according to the saying of the Royall profett: 
Adhasit anima mea post te^ me suscepit dextera tua ; ^my soule hoik 
clouen to thee^ and thy right hand taken me* : and againe deduxit me 
super semitas Justitke propter nomen suum^ ' he hath led me through 
the paths of Justice to glorify his name.' And how he hedged in Us 
way with thornes when there was danger for him to stepp aside, as he 
promises to do with his elect by the mouth of an other prophet A 
vertuous youth rons great hazard of relenting his feruour whilst he is 
in the infirmary, if he [bej but lightly sick and has noe great paine to 
quicken his spirit and put him in mind of God. For the liberty and 
indulgence graunted to that place, of laying long in bed, of sitting all 
the day by the fire side, of talking, playing, disporting and the like, 
makes him soone forgett his duty, to neglect his accustomed deuotions 
and to loose in the space of a few days what he had gained in many 
weeksi and perhaps will not recouer in twice as many. Our Litle

Edmund might well haue ron this danger as being confined to y^ 
Infirmary for a long time, not by any ague or such like sharpe disease 
but by reason of a cathar or defluxion which faling vppon his stomack 
held him in a weake condition, yet so that he might talke play or 
(p. 32) go about, and entertaine himself meryly as he pleased ; but our 
ble^cd Lord euer carefiill to maintaine and conserue what he had 
ahready wrought in that choise vessel of his grace, held him so strictly 
to his duty that perhaps in that dangerous place and time, he in vertue 
profitted, and aduanced his merit to a higher (Ntch then without that 
occasion he woold haue arriued to in many a yeare. He permitted 
the diuel to trouble and disquiet his minde with scruples and strange 
fears amdetys and such thoughts that he neuer experienced the like 
in all his life time either before or after. What shoold this pure and 
faithfuU haert do in this occasion ? he feared more the offence of God 
then all the diuels of hell, though they shoold haue appeared in their 
most hidious shapes, and yet which way so euer he turned himself he 
stood as he thought vppon the very brim of that dismal pitt and 
sometimes doubted whether he weare not already falen into it He 
pressently retired into solitude seperated himself from company came 
not where the fier was and spent the greatest part of the day alone 
in the chappel, or (when he was wearied out with ouer long kneeling) 
at his bed side drawing the curtains vppon him for to be solitary. 
Heere he praied, wept, examined and serched euery comer of his mind, 
commended himself vnto his Patrons caled without intermission vppon 
almighty God, in a word he might well haue said with dolefuU Jeremie : 
(p. 33) non sedi in concilio Ludentium^ solus sedebam quoniam tommina" 
Hone rtpUsH me ; quart foetus est dolor meus perpetuus^ et plaga mea 
desperMUs renuit curari, '/ absent myself from those who laugh and 
play^ and sitt heere solitary alone because you haue filled me with terrours 
and threats of your Judgement How eomes it that my sorrow endures 
so long and that this woond of mine in a manner is desperat and kan 
find no cure* In the meane while the good Brother that had care of 
the sick, and dearely loued this child for his vertue, apprehending that 
some of his companions had contristated him, corns vnto him and 
sweetly cherishing him desires him to go sit by the fier and to be 
mery with the rest in the Infirmery; to whom he answers, that he 
could take no comfort being extremely afilicted in minde, vntill his 
ghostly Father were caled vnto him. But whether his ghostly Father 
where then from home, or otherwise employed, there passed some days. 
If I bee not mistaken, before he knew any thing of the childs trouble 
or affliction : and comming vnto him at lenght found him in that sad 
condition that it greiued him to the very haert He looked like one 
frighted and scared; you woold haue thought you had seen a little 
bird vnder a boosh panting and trembling, and eying the Kite that 
was houering about expecting for to catch it So strange a horrour 
had that (p. 34) innocent soule of the least shaddow of sin. After this 
(as he was most obedient) he cheered vpp, grew more confident and 
entertained himself more familiarly with his companions, and yet during 
the whole time of his aboade in the Infirmary a great paert of the 
same trouble remaiaedy which he sotight to allay t^ firequent prayer,

wherein he was so assiduous that he spent more time at his deuotions 
then could haue been permitted him had he bin well and out of the 
Infirmary. Thus did our mercifiill Lord, that by the intermission of 
his ordinary and domesticall exercises he shoold come to suffer no 
losse or detriment in spirit and deuotion. 

It was no lesse a mercy of God and more continually which made 
that become most bitter and ircksome vnto him which ordinaryly is 
vnto children and men also one of the sweetest contentments of the 
world, to witt the merry and free company of those that are alwais 
iesting for to cause sport and laughter, which as great S"^ Basil 
obserues doth quite dissolue the vigour of the soule and much 
interrupt the communication it hath wiUi God, but the difficulty which 
litle Edmund had therein, as it proceeded from a most candid 
sincerity, so it was a great incitement vnto him for to be in a manner 
continually praying. This sweet child, as he had a horrour and 
detestation of lying, so could he not easyly persuade him self that 
any woold euer tell (p. 35) him a ly, and therefore whatsoeuer was said 
vnto him, he took it as spoaken in sincerity. And as for mendacium 
iocosum, *a ly tauld in iesV hee did not know what it ment of w^ 
sort of ly S : Augustin says thus. In quo non magna culpa est, tamen 
non est sine culpa, Mendacium in iocando ideo non est pemiciosissimum^ 
quia non fallit^ nouit enim ille cui dicitur^ ioci causa esse dictum, ' Utere 
is no great fault in it, yet is it not without fault. A Ly spoken in iest is 
not extreamiy pernicious^ because it doth not deceiue; for he to whom it is 
spoaken knows it to be spoken in iest,^ But his innocency vnderstood 
not this; which caused him often great troubles; wherein our B* 
Lord who intended in a short time to perfect his happy soule, had 
2 great designes the one was to afford him matter of meritt by 
exercising his patience and meekenesse; for heering diuers things 
most improbable, said of him by his companions (as with children it 
sometimes happens), and not knowing that they iested with him but 
thinking such was the opinion they had of him, he woold not stand 
to iustifie himselfe, nor to contest with them, but quietly dissembled 
his grief by houlding his peace, though it stung him to the very 
haert To heere him sometimes in confidence lay open these his 
troubles (which he did now and then to his Ghostly Father) woold 
make anyone embrace and loue his sincerity and candor, tenderly 
resent his afflictions, and admire his vertue in bearing them, (p. 36) and 
yet to blesse himself to see his innocent mistakes. This his patient 
dissembling was in things that concerned himself; for when he 
thought Gods honour to be engaged, it was strange y^ a litle child 
shoold show so great zeale. A companion once let fall some words 
which signified that wrather then he woold loose all his means, and 
become a beggar, he woold temporise and go to church with hereticks. 
This was a to edged sword in Edmunds haert and he did so bestir 
him self to bring his companion to vnderstand the indignity of his 
saying and the danger he exposed himself to, that he being quite 
ashamed of his words said he spoak onely in iest, and not onely then 
endeauoured to persuade Edmund as much but also at other times 
came and excused his rash and inconnderal words. Another time it

happened that Edmund being in the company of 3 or 4 that weare 
speaking of the pressent warrs, one of them by way of exaggeration 
said he woold kill himself before he woold come into the hands of 
the ennemy, for which an other graue yuth pressently rebuked him, 
but Edmund burst forth into tears which was a great check vnto 
him, and a most wholsom admonition as well to those that then saw 
him as also to all those whom they tould it vnto. The other designe 
of Almighty God was to make all company and conuersation that 
might haue caused the least blemish to the most singular purity and 
(p. 37) innocency of his consciens to become bitter and distastfiiU 
vnto him, and by this means sweetly to draw or euen to compell him 
to prayer and communication with his maiesty. For euen as the 
litle bird seing it self in danger flys vnto its nest; were it fears 
neither Hawke nor foulers snare, so this sweet bird of Paradise, this 
mysticall Turtle, finding litle comfort els weare was euer repairing to 
the sodality where he had his nest 7\irtur nidutn sibi vbi ponat pullos 
sues: altaria tua Domine virtutum. For heere weare his chast grones, 
his innocent sighs, his feruent prayers and strong resolutions, and he 
acknowledged to his Confessarious that our Lord did comfort him 
in prayer. In the church indeed he prayed not much but it was at 
those times when all the schoUers where to be there, and he was for 
the most part euer vppon his knees, though holy seruis at certaine 
times of the yeare lasteth three howers. Insomuch that his prefect 
did feare he woold endomage his health by so long and intens 
prayer; and was resolued if he had recouered of his last sicknesse 
to haue forbidden him to kneele so long together. But his deuotion 
appeared more in the sodality were his hart and tresor was amongst 
the relicques of Saints, which like to a crowne or diademe of glory 
did enuiron our B^ Sauiour vppon the Alter, where is verified that 
which the Prophet sings. Deus qui ghrificatur in consilio sanctorum 
magnus et ierribiiis super omnes qui in circuitu sunt * God is glorified in 
the assembly of Saints, and he appears great and full of maiesty ouer all 
that are round about himJ In this sodality it is scarce credible how 
often litle Edmund was praying when there was no obligation that 
caled him els were. Vppon holy days, and play days, the schollers 
haue many howers which they may dispose of as they please. It was 
a matter of great edification to see how prudently he disposed his 
time. A litle of it he allotted to play, or to entertaine himself with 
some companion, the rest he distributed between prayer and studdy; 
for to pray was vnto him as meat and drink, and yet hardly any one 
in the Colledge was more studious then he. At his prayers he knelt 
in a most decent, modest, quiet, sweet posture, without any affectation 
or ostentation of deuotion. Insomuch that you might haue knelt 
by him for a good space of time, and scars haue knowne that he 
was there, if you had not seen him. He had many innocent pious 
practises that came as sweetly, and naturally from him, as water flows 
from a fountaine. When he came to his Ghostly Fathers chamber, 
whatsoeuer his businesse was, in the first place, he alwaies asked him 
blessing vppon both knees with singular Reuerence, which he obserued 
also as he went out of his chambo:. 



MIClfOIR OF EDMUND MATflBW 77 

As he passed along the galleries he woold kisse the picture 
hanging on the walls, which he could reach vnto, (p. 39) and those 
that are fastned to the doors. 

When he was to walke abroade (besides his inuiolable customs of 
visiting the sodality before he went out and againe as soone as he 
came home) he yused, if he had a companion that he could be 
confident with, to say our Ladys Litanies as soone as he was out of 
the towne; and neuer failed a litle before the signe was giuen for 
to call them all home to say the said littanies with some other 
prayers in thanksgiuing that our Lord had preserued him and the 
rest of his companions from all harme and badd encounter that day 
abroad, for which purpos he had agreed with one of his schoole 
fellows for to be redy at a signe, for to come out and walke out with 
him a litle from the rest, before they where caled home. Noe boddy 
could look vppon this child with a faithfull ey whilst he was at his 
deuotions, but he did lodge him in his very haert, and much desire 
to haue part in those innocent and feruent prayers. Some haue out 
of a kind of Reuerence vnto him kissed the place, and euen now 
kisse the ground where his knees were so often and so deuoutly 
planted in prayer. Wee do very particularly ascribe vnto his holy 
prayers two most precious and authentical Relicques of the Prime 
Virgin Martyrs Saincte Catherine and S: Agnes, which do now 
enrich our Sodality, for wilst we were negotiating for them, wee sett 
him a praying and (p. 40) wee found better successe then by human 
means could be expected, and we do confide by his intercession to 
obtain the holy relicque of the incomparable Si" Martina which with 
an impatient desire wee expect from Roome. 

Without question it is he who was receiued a most welcome guest 
to the whole congregation of Blessed Saincts, whom vppon earth as 
their humble client he had honoured and reuerenced with all dutiful! 
affection and deuotion. The Roman martyrologe he both heard at 
table, and red priuatly euery day, with much spirituall gust and 
contentment Before the solemnitys of his particular Patrons, which 
were very frequent, he was wont to desire his Freinds, with whom he 
was most confident, to pray for him and help him for to honour 
them, promising to do the like for them on their Patrons dayes ; his 
greatest comfort and recreation was to discours with one of his owne 
humoiu*, of the holy Saints, and particularly of the holy virgins and 
tender litle children, that adorned their innocency and virginity with 
an heroical fortitude and constancy in torments suffered for the loue 
and faith of Christ. These discourses offered his mind a continuall 
and festiuall banquet and he wel resembled those happy soules of 
whom wee read where represented in a vision as milke white Lambs 
feeding in a most sweet and delicious medow vppon the purest Lelys^ for he 
wanted not the innocent (p. 41) candour of a Lamb, and his cleane, 
generous, and lofty thoughts, which had a horror of a woridly and 
transitory thought or deUght, were euer entertained with the pure 
sweet akvais flourishing leHes of the mysteries of our Sauiour his life^ 
his incomprehensible loue to manhind^ the worthy actions and suffrinp of 
his saints and the etemall ioys ofheauen.

He bore particular deuotion to the saints of his name, the 2 
S^ Edmunds to wit the King and Martyr, and the Bishop and Con- 
fessour, to the Apostle of his country S. Patricks, to those whose 
sacred relicques are kept in the Sodality^ and vnto Si" Procopius 
Martyr whose feast is on the 8 of July. R. F. Rectour that then 
was of the Colledge of liege^ sent vnto him and his Brother and cosen 
some sacred dust of the bones of the holy martyrs S^" Primus and 
Faustus fastened with gome to silke in forme of a crosse. These 
Relicques they all three receiued as an inestimable treasure with 
incredible ioy, and got them put and enclosed in syluer crosses with 
glasses before them for to weare them at their brests. Edmund highly 
reuerenced and deerly loued these saints and preferred his reliquary 
before scepters and crownes oi Kin^. Since his death his Brother 
entends to put it about his neck msteed of his owne, the saincts 
being the same, and this hauing some new veneration added to it by 
Edmunds constant deuotion thereunto. Wlierein it is not amisse to 
obserue that when their relicquaries were first made and brought vnto 
them Edmund as being the youngest gaue place vnto his Brother and 
Cosen contenting himself with what they had left, but now this is fax 
preferred and sought for before the other 2, and happy is he that can 
haue it 

But of all the saints, next to the Qub£nb of Saints, this saintly 
child did loue, esteem, honour and confide most in S"*" Encratides 
a glorius Virgin and Martyr otherwise caled Engratia, of whom 
the Church in the Roman martyrologe speaketh on the 16 of April 
The life and martyrdome of this dearest spouse of Christ was related 
vnto him about a yeare and [a] half befor his death, and he was willed 
to make choise of her for his speciall Patronesse, which he did as 
obediently as if he had been committed vnto her care and protection 
by the expresse commendation of our Sauiour. From that time he 
considered S^ Encratides as his Mother, euery day asked her blessing, 
committed all his affairs to her, and by her offered them vp vnto our 
B. Lady that she woold vouchsafe to offer them vnto her Sonna 
When he was to appeare in any publick exercise, as disputing, inter- 
preting Greek, acting and the like S*^ Encratides was most earnestly 
prayed vnto and desired to prosper his designes. Yet he was more carefuU 
to be gratefull vnto her for the good successe of the businesse when 
it was ouer then solicitous (p. 43) to obtaine her fauour when he was to 
sett about it. In euery theme he made, was written in his fairest hand 
Ad maiorsm Dei Dbipara et SANCTiC Encratidis gloriam. In 
euery place he stood in awfiill feare and respect of this good mother 
persuading himself that she took notice of his behauiour. His Master 
wondered to see this saints name, who is not much knowne or talked 
oi^ in euery theme he brought to schoole, but discoursing once with 
him about her, he did for more admire the iubily and exultation of 
haert with which the gratefull child did speake of his deare saint 
Mother. After which time his Master took now and then occasion to 
say something in the scoole of that most Louely Saint, and presently 

4c Ftlher John Stevens, S.J., was succeeded in the rcctoratc of Liege in October, 
1666, by Father Edward Couruiey. 



OP SDMCJND MATimr f9 

litle £dmunds countenanoe became almost seraphical, such m)» of a 
most innocent spiritual ioy and gladnesse did appear and shine therein. 
Where vppon his Maister for to feed himself and his scholiers with a 
spiritual contentment in his schoole action, wherein he represented the 
Martjnrdome of the two holy children S. Justus and S*^ Pastor (the 
Latter wereof lide Edmund acted most gratiously) the Master took 
occasion frequently to name Saint £ncratides, which he might wdl 
do, she being of the same country, to witt a Spanish Lady, and hauing 
suffered in the same Persecution and vnder the same bloody Tyrant 
with those 2 litle Brothers. And it was a pleasure to obserue the ioy 
whidi without affectation redounded into the face of this her moat 
gratefuU client, as often as her (p. 44) delightfull name occuned whetbcr 
himself pronounced it, or heard it from the Mouth of his companioiNt 
What fauours y« Blessed Virgin Martyr Saint Encratidbs returned 
ynto her dearest pupill, wee shall know when wee come to the place 
where this sweet child with his good Mother behoulds the face of Goa 

It seems not improbable ^though I will affirme nothing) that either 
Saint Encratides or some blessai spirit appeared visibly vnto him 
at his death ; for to recdue his thrice happy soule, and present it before 
the throne of God. For not long before he died, as he was lying on 
his left side, on a suddaine he turned himself on his right side, as if 
he were casting himself into the embracements of one that was come 
to receiue him, and this with so much eamestnesse that he had fallen 
out of his bed, had not he been helped and shoued back by the 
father that stood by, and yet still he made the same offer, and in 
fine so died with his armes, head and neck stretched out, and his ey 
directed to the same place. A man may thinke he was frighted; 
neither will I gainsay; for almighty God doth permitt some of the most 
innocent Persons to haue at dieir death hidious and horrid sights (as 
wel for the encrease of their merit by exercise of hope, and confidence 
in our deare God as also to purify and cleans their souls from that litle 
drosse which yet remains, and is to be scoured after death in Puigatoiy 
if it be not taken away by some great mercy of God graunted to 
certaine choise soules that haue been very exact and faithfuU in his 
holy seruice) to preuent in this manner their purgatory, that going forth 
of their boddies they may immediatly be admitted amongst the rest of 
the blessed in heauen. And it is likely enough Edmund was in this 
manner prooued, and exercised by some dreadfull sight, represented vnto 
him on the left side of liis bed which made him in a fright tume to 
the other : yet two things do persuade me that (Mressently after this vgly 
sight (if he had any such) he enioyed a comfortable vision of a blessed 
spirit For first, if this stretching out of his hands and head had been 
to flay away and secure himself from y^ dreadfull obiect he woold bane 
made towwls his ghostly Father that stood by his bed, as we saw many 
of vs to gether some years before a most vertuous youth lying vppon 
his death bed, who being in this manner affrighted during some howen, 
turned still towards him that was praying by him, catched hould of his 
^rdle held it fast with both his hands, and sought to shrowd himself 
into his bosome, being all this while so pressent to himself and so 
able that be often si^ied himself with the holy Crossb and both

did, and spake, wat was prescribed and councelled: but title Edmund 
made not his addresse vnto the Priest, that was close by him in a veiy 
conspicious place, but to some other person inuisible to the Priests eys. 
Secondly pressently after he had suddainly turned from the left side his 
countenance which was before troubled and ghastly, became calme and 
sweet. And in fine that posture and those gesturs did not seeme to 
be of a Person pursued by an ennemy, but of [a] louing child running 
to the armes of his mother, who if it (p. 46) where the glorious Virgin 
S^ Encratides I shall not wonder, considering his constant duety 
▼nto her not intermitted euen in this his last sicknesse. For he caled 
amourously vppon her in his sharpest pains assuring himself of her 
help and protection. And, which aboue all is to be reflected vppon, 
made choise of her for his Mother and speciall patronesse yppon this 
confidence that she shoold assist and defend him in his last and most 
dangerous conflict. But of this, euery man as he thinks. Certain it 
is that, as his life was most innocent, so was his death most precious. 

When and by what means our Lord did first begin to draw him 
to so great perfection I know not : onely this that it was soone after 
his coming to our seminary of S' Omers, where in the space of 2 years 
and a half he arriued to an eminent degree of vertue; so much I 
can say that he and his Brother and aiso their cosen, (who came 
hither some while before them, and by the great commendations he 
gaue of the place was the cause of their coming) where in this all 
very happy, that pressently at their first arriuall they consorted 
themselues with vertuous and discreet companions, who by word and 
example fashioned and framed them (they being all three of an 
excellent temper) to the loue of order and obseruance, which is of 
infinite importance to children for their future carriadge. Edmunds 
Ghostly Father vsed to say of him when he was yet liuing and likely to 
Hue, and spoake it more than once or twice to the superiour of the 
house, that this child was truely and solidly vertuous and that he 
thought God was disposing to take him (p. 47) soone to heauen, or if 
he entended to haue him stay longer in the world had great designes 
ouer him. 

The night before his death there watched with him two of the 
grauest students, the one his schoolfellow; the other his Brothers and 
cosens intimat freind. Towards the morning were caled Father 
Minister and his ghostly Father and these 4 had occasion to be neare 
him and touch him, to take his breath and the like (wherein they were 
lesse wary, for that they apprehended not his disease to be contagious) 
and one of them, after it was euident what sicknesse he had, staid with 
him and was pressent when he died, and about a quarter after. And 
though the yuths that where with him weare fasting and not prouided 
of human preseruatiue or antidote, yett they litle feared they shoold 
euer bee the wors for him, as indeed they were not It happened also 
that one of our youths, a tender child, came in to the Roome where he 
died pressently after his boddy was conueyed thence, litle knowing that 
he was dead, and much lesse suspecting what disease he died of, and 
yet neuer ailed anything. To say nothing that the day before his death 
many schoUers and others where promiscuously with him, and that 



MEMOIR OP EDMUND MATHXW 8l 

the chamber was such where in he died that the contagion might haue 
been spread from it to the greatest part of our house, as they indeed 
who carried his boddy away did much feare and suspect And ^et 
Almighty God be euer praised not one Person receiued harme by hun, 
for that innocent Boddy, fjEtithfuU partner of a holy soule (though for 
the common curse laid vppon Adam with all his (p. 48) Posterity, and 
for his owne greater merit was infected with the Plague) yet deriued 
not infection to any boddy els ; which in the circumstances, place, and 
time, oi his death was very wonderfull, and looked on, as an effect of 
his prayers and singular merit with God Almighty. And wee are 
confident wee haue in him a Patron in heauen, who draws many a 
spirituall and temporall blessing vppon oiu* house, moriafur anima mea 
marte huius et fiant nauissima mea huius Similia. ^God grant me to dy 
his happy deaths and first to Hue his blessed life that so my end may 
become like hisJ Amen.

Rocmamis" contains on pajges 73-77 a considerable list of Recusants of Maswim (or 
Masham). The North Ridmg Record Society has also published a valuable collection 
of Recusants of that Riding, unfortunately with more variety of indexing than is 
desindile. The following dates may be mentioned regarding Masham Recusants 
under the several volumes and pages: —

The Civil War followed, and '* Papistical Recusants " shared with some of their 
former persecutors a shorter shrift When the Commonwealth was established they 
suffered with other ** Delinquents," or more so, for Cromwell's toUrance did not 
embrace Catholics. Charles II would frdn have extended tolerance, had not the lies 
based on the |reat fire and the machinations of Titus Oates, and other miscreants, 
inflamed the mind of the ignorant and fanatical lower classes. Page 195 of volume vi 
bristles a^ain with Recusants at the Quarter Sessions of 20 Tany., 167], at Richmond ; 
but this IS beyond the time of the following extracts made by Mr. Gibbons, which 
teemed to him to relate to Recusants. It must be clearly understood that other 
indictments, as for non-pajrment of assessments and offences against the criminal law, 
are excluded as beyond the scope of the Catholic Record Society's undertaldng. 

A special feature in these returns is, that after all the harryingabout of 
Recusants at Quarter Sessions at Helmsley, Malton, Northallerton, Richmond, 
Stokesley, Thirsk, and special sessions elsewhere, with an occasional summons to the 
Assizes at York or London, they had their ** Peculiar Courts" near at home, to keep 
up the persecution between times. The Danbys and Wyvills mentioned were the 
most important families in the parish, having inherited the estate of Thomas, fifth 
Lord Scrope of Masham, through his second and third daughters, Margaret and 
Elizabeth, his four sons, Thomas, Henry, Ralph, and Geoffery, who each succeeded 
him in the baronv, having all died without issue. (Burk^z Rxtimt Peerage.) Some 
members of the lesser gentry appear in the list, but the bulk of the names are of 
yeomen, husbandmen, weavers or websters, cordwainers or shoemakers, tailors, 
colliers, &c, and their families. Many of the names are still found in the district.' 
High stationed or lowly, their names constantly recur in the rolls of Recusants.

THREE LETTERS RELATING TO THE TREATMENT 

OF THE CATHOUC PRISONERS IN 

WISBEACH CASTLE, 1615 

CONTRIBUTKD BY HeNRY HOUSTON BaLL 
Bodldan Labnry, MS. Ashmole Sa6, ff. 215, 217, 219. 



L PROTEST OF THE PRISONERS 
(f. 215.) Ifcs. 

All we the Catholick prisoners committed by speciall order from 
the LL* of his Ma'*" most honourable priuy Counsaile vnto the Castle 
of Wisbich there to be kept vnder the custody of M' Taylor the Constable 
therof according to the directions giuen by their LLJ* vnto the sayd 
Constable, vnfsdnedly protest that we are willing in all respectiue duty 
to submitt ourselues to their LLp* direction, so far forth as may stand 
w^ the safeguard of our Hues, immunity of our consciences, and safety 
of our frendes: but hauing diligently considered of the vnvsuall seuerity 
and rigorous strictnes of many of the proposed articles w'^ one consent 
we all conclude that they are morally impossible of vs to be obserued 
w'^ut y^ manifest danger of our liues, and vtter mine and decay both 
of our frends our healths and fortunes: For that our small meanes 
being already exhausted by a long and tedious restraint in other prisons, 
and we on the sudden conveyed hither not being able w'^ all our 
endeauo" to prooure our stay for some few dayes, w^ we earnestly 
craued to furnish o'selues of such meanes as were necessary to prolong 
our discomfortable Hues, are therby brought to those straights as we 
see no meane if these articles be as severely executed as they be strictly 
sett downe, but of necessity we must DeQI into extreame calamity of 
penury and fiamine, for that we cannot send to o' frends abroad for 
our necessary releefe either letter or message w^ut drawing them for 
their charity into y^ compasse of greater danger, neither can they repaire 
or send vnto vs w'^ut y^ like hazard : so that in no likelyhood we 
can find meanes to vndergoe the charge though it were very much 
diminished from what is sett downe. Yet for the present we are willing 
to giue 2' 4^ by the weeke for a bed, whether we lye together or seueralli 
and are desirous to content our selues w'^ such meane dyett as o' weake 
fortunes will allow vs, w^ we desire may be of our owne providing. 
For the fees we haue payd them allready in our former prisons, and 
are vnable now to satisfye so great a summe, besides that we are very 
credibly informed that our Predecessors whose meanes were much better 
and liberty far greater were neuer demaunded such dutyes, yet if their 
LLp^ shall be pleased to remoue or release vs at what time onely we 
are informed those duties if any such be are customaryly demaunded, 



88 PRISONERS IN WISBEACH CASTLE 

we will giue to y« Keeper such content as we are able. Humbly crauing 
that in the meane time we be not abridged of the small Uberty of 
this house, and the mutuall comfort of one anothers conversation, 
being ready in all submissiue duty vpon better consideration to shew 
vnto their LLp* the reasons we haue to complaine of the burthen of 
diuerse other of (f. 215^) the articles, the like wherof haue neuer yet 
been heard to haue been prescribed to men of our profession and quality. 

II. PRISONERS' ADDRESS TO KING JAMES I. 
(f. 217.) 

Most puisaunt and Orientafi Monarch. 

Sutch are the rare perfections and admirable giftes of wisdome 
prudence vallor and iustice wherw*** the bountifulnes of godes diuine 
Ma'^ is in y* depth of yowr prouident iudgement we doubt not but 
yow forsee what concerneth both the spirituaH and temporall gouerment 
of ait yowr kingdomes and dominions. Notw^tanding yowr graces 
most aflicted seruauntes and deuoted subiectes y^ Catholiques of England 
partely to preuent sinister informacions w<* happely maye possesse yowr 
sacred eares before our aunswears be heard, and partly as men ouer* 
whelmed w^ persecutions for our consciences, wear enforced to haue 
speedy recourse in hope of speedy redresse. And to present these 
humble lines vnto yowr royaii person to plead for vs commiseracion 
& fiauour. Alas what alleagaunce can any temporal!: prince desire or 
expect? How many noble men & gentlemen most zealous in the 
catholique religion haue endured, some losse of landes & liuinge, some 
exile, other imprisonment, some the effusion of bloud, and sdi for y* 
aduauncement of yowr blessed mother to y^ scepter of Albian Naie 
whose fingers did ake but catholiques of yowr Ma'»*» present titles and 
dominions, how many fled to yowr court oflringe themselues as hostages 
for ther freindes to liue and die in yowr graces quarrell, if euer aduersarie 
had opposed themselues against the equitye of yowr cause. Yf this 
attempted w'** ther Princes disgrace, and yowr graces fauour the menne 
of this Realme yf we respect religion setting pettie scectes aside con- 
sisteth in 4 partes : protestauntes who haue domineared aH y^ Queenes 
dayes : puritanes who haue crept apace amongest them, Atheistes or 
polliticians who wear bred vpon ther brawles and contencions in matters 
of faith. The Catholiques who as they weare opposite to aH so are 
they detested of aH because error was euer enuyingc to truth. Soe 
we beseech yowr maiestie to yeeld vs as mutch fauour of contrarie 
religion, as that w<^ shalbe publiquelye professed in England shall 
obtaine at yowr handes, for if our Suites be like, lesse, or none at all, 
in equitie our punishment ought to be like lesse or none at aH. The 
Gates Arches and Piramides of Fraunce proclaimed the present kinge 

Pater patriae is restitutor, because the kingdome being weH nighe 

tome in pieces w*** intestine and ciuitt warrs and made a praye of 
forraighne foes, was by his prouident wisedome gouerment and vallore 
acquieted in it self & hostile strangers exiled, the w^** he principally 
effected by condescendinge to tollerate them or any aduerse religion 
to that w<^ was openly professed. Questionles dread soueraighne y^

odious almost to aH christian nations. Trades and traffiques are ex-

& taskes neuer so many, discontented mindes innumerable. Att w^ 
yowr Ma'^ princely countenaunce to yowr humble suppliaunt afflicted 
Catholiques wiH easylye redresse. Especially at this yowr Ma'^ ingresse. 
Si loquamur ad eos uerba laenia erunt tibi semi cunctis diebus saith 

the counsett of Salomon to Roboam for enl after afliction is 

like a pleasaunt gale after a vehement tempest, & a benefitt in distresse 
doub[les] the valewe therof. How gratefutt witt it be to sdi catholique 
princes and honorable to yowr Ma^ to vnderstand that Queene Elizabethes 
seuerityc is chaunged into yowr royati clemencie And y* lenitie of a 
man hath reedified that vr^ the misinformed anger of a woman hath 
destroyed. That y* Lyon rampaunt is passant, wheras the passant hath 
bin rampant How acceptable shatt yowr subiectes be to all catholique 
countries (who are now almost abhorde of aA men) when they shatt 
perceiue that yowr highnes prepareth not pikes & prisons for the 
professors of the faith: but permitteth them temples and altars for 
the vse of ther religion when we shaH see w**» our eyes and touch 
w*** our fingers that happie benediction of Esaye in this land 'that 
swordes are chaunged into plowes, & lances in to sythes and att nations 
admiring vs witt saye, hi sunt cui benedicit deus. We request no more 
fauour at yowr graces handes then that we maye securely beleeue & 
professe that catholique religion, w^ all our happie (f. 217^) predecessors 
professed, from Donaldus first conquerour vntitt yowr Ma**^ pearelesse 
mother last martired, a religion vennerable for antiquitye, maiesticatt 
for amplitude, constant for continewance Irreprehensible for doctrine, 
enducinge to att kind of vcrtue & piety, diswading from att sinne & 
wickednes, a religion beleeued of att primitiue apostles, established by 
att canonicatt counsells, vpheld by att auncient Doctors, maintayned by 
the first & last christian emperors, recorded almost in aB. ecclesiasticatt 
histories, sealed w'^ the bloud of Million of martirs, adorned w^ the 
vertues of so many professors bewtified w^ the puritie of thousandes 
of virgins, so comfortable to naturatt sence & reason, & finally most 
agreeable to the sacred text of godes word & gospell. The freenes 
of religion we request it not w* approbacion yet with toUeracion w^'^out 
molestacion. Assure vowr Ma*** that Howsoeuer somme protestauntes 
or puritanes incite w^ some morrsdi honestie of lyfe or instinct of 
nature or for feare of some temporatt punishment, pretend obedience 
to yowr highnes lawes ; yet certainly only the Catholiques for conscience 
sake obserue them. For protestauntes defend that princes preceptes 
& statutes oblige no subiectes vnder the penalty of sinne, w**» little 
care of conscience in conscience to transgresse the w^^ principally is 
tormented w^ gale of sinne. But catholiques confessing merrites in 
obeying or demerrites in transgressing in transgressing [j/Vit/IS.], cannot 
but he grieuously tormented for the preseruacion therof. Wherfore most

My verie Honorable good Lord, 

I ame bolde to solicite your Lopp w*** y« Occurrentes in Wisbeche 
Castell, concerning the Recusantes committed to my Charge, who y« 
first weeke of theire committem^ were dieted at my chaige whereof 
they haue paid me part, And the rest they haue promised so soone 
as dieire meanes and wantes are supplied, being so much as I disbursed 
for that weekes diett, And being not able to contmue that charge anie 
riu*- *k longer, desired that they might diett themselues, w<* I 
i3ScI? durst not yeld vnto before I know yoTa): Directions 

therein: But I haue putt them ouer to M'Blancke for 
theire next weekes Diett at y« rate of v» the man. But as for the 
Fees of theire Comittment they answeare they haue paid y^ once before, 
and are not able to paie anie more for the same ; And allso for theire 
Lodgeinges they haue paid me part: And the rest they will sadsfie 
after the rate of iij* a weeke, so soone as they haue anie money : And 
they intend to fumishe theire owne Chambers so fast as they are able: 
But (my good Lord) they hold them selues greatly Discontent in that 
Reaort ^^^^ ^^ barred from theire freindes Companie who are the

maie Conferre w^ them about theire wantes, and haue such 
accesse vnto them as /Aey haue hadd in times paste^ they will haue no 
body Come to them for feare they should be brought in question for 
theire Religion : Therefore they are Like to contynue in greate want, 
except it please the Councell to giue a litle more Libertie then the 
strictnes of theire orders will extend, For they dare not write to theire 
freindes nor theire freindes to them because theire Lettres must be 
riewed by theire Keeper vppon what occasion soeuer, w<* they thinck 
to be vene strict, that the necessitie of theire busines must be knowne 
to others as well as to them selues. By reason whereof they will not 
write at all. And so by that meanes must lyue still in want. But if 
it pleaseth his Ma**« to allow them maintenance they are contente to 
endure anie straight keeping that it shall please his Ma^ to inflict 
vppon them : They allso thinck themselues greatlie wronged to haue 
theire bookes taken from them, being no other but such

(f. 219^) These theire discontentes, except they maie be somewhat 
qualified are likely to driue them into some desperate courses, w«*» my 
self not haueing aucthoride by Commission to bridle theire wilfulnes, 

but must be faine to praie the aide of the next Justices

LETTERS OF THE ARCHPRIEST HARRISON RELATIVE 
TO THE APPOINTMENT OF AN AGENT AT THE 
ROMAN CURIA, &c 

Transcribed and Translated by 
DoM Gilbert Dolan, O.S.B. 

Thb Nuntio at the Court of Brussels was in many ways more closely connected with 
England than any other Papal representative. The majority of the Enf^lish colleges 
and convents lay in Belgium, and he was geogntphioilly nearer to London tfim 
any other Nuntio. There were, therefore, many reasons for Dr. Harrison's (reqnent 
communication with this ecclesiastical centre. Unfortunately, the name ot the 
proposed agent does not appear. We only learn that he was the brother of the 
secretary to the Nuntio, who at this time was Monsignor Lucio Sanseverino, Arch- 
bishop of Salema The MS. from which this is printed is a contemporarr draft or 
copy oelonging to Miss Harting. Copied on the same sheet of paper and the first 
letter bearing the later date, it seems probable that it was a covering one to the others 
relating to the appointment of agent at the Curia Romana. The vacancy for the 
name of the agent in the letter-patent may have been left for the Nuntio to fill in 
correctly. These and other documents may throw light on one another. 

lUustiissimo Nuntio Belgico: 
Secretario ejus Agenti nostro fratri. 
13 Dec, 1618. 
Illustrissime Domine, 

Solitus sum vernali et aestivo tempore visitare partes remotiores 
r^ni, ut disciplinam ecclesiasticam (quantum fieri potest in his turbu- 
lentissimis temporibus) conservare, concordiam mutuam pacemque 
nutrire dissensiones et contentiones si quae fuerint compescere queam : 
quas causa fuit silentii mei, quo hucusque usus sum ut litteris vestris 
vemalibus, quae aliquantulo tardius ad me pervenerunt respondere 
nequivi. Nunc vero vel imprimis, tibi gratias quas potero ago exhibeo 
certe maximas pro ultimis ad me tuis litteris omni humanitate ac 
charitate plenis in quibus omnia amoris officia pro nobis hie in 
Anglia offerre ac praestare dignatus es, sicut de reipsa et de facto 
Reverendo Domino Matthaeo Kellisono praesidi meritissimo coll^i 
nostri Duaceni saepe contulisti, quod te protegente nunc reflorescere 
ac pristinum splendorem recuperare videtur. Ideoque de felici pro- 
gressu illius collegii spem maximam concipiens plura dicere super- 
sedeo, et ad miserabilem luctuosumque patriae nostrae Angliae statum 
redeo, de qua licet moerore ac squallore oppressa, in spem maximam 
tamen erectus sum, ut Deus tandem aliquando miseraturus populi sui 
afflicti, et persecutionis quae catholicis per universum regnum affligit : 
nuudme vero praefectus partium borealium saevit, qui sacerdotem 
saecularem crudeliter more solito trucidandum praecepit, die noctuque 
exploratores suos mittens qui catholicos deprehendere, incarcerare ac 
bonis suis spoliare domi forisque invigilant : fadnorisque ejus nephan-

dum inter multa alia referam, quod me non longe distante condgit 
Cum unus ex hujus praefecd lictoribus cursitanduit, intravit in domum 
cujusdam catholici nocte, invenitque eum cum uxore qui strepitum 
audiendOy e lecto se erigebat sicque ilium interfecit, uxoremque mulds 
vulneribus ac plagis saudavit cumque nobilis quidam de hoc nephando 
scelere in comitiis conquasstus sit, respondebat homicida, quod surgere 
voluit ut gladium suum acciperet prope lectum, resisteretque magis- 
tratui, vel interficeret, unde iniquus judex, minas et terrores contra 
uxorem fulminans, interfectorem mariti sui facile liberavit, brevitatique 
studens data opera hujusmodi multa lubens .... enda In australi 
plaga prope Londinum mitiiis agitur ne nuptiae principis nostri cum 
Infanta Hispaniae impedirentur : nihilominus tamen in civitate Lon- 
dinensi lictores et exploratores quotidie cursitant, et in carceres more 
solito conjiciunt, quosdam vero adeo stricte ac severe custodiunt, ut 
nullus sit illis aditus aut colloquium, reliquos paulo liberiores detinent, 
ita tamen ut nullo modo ^r^li, quam urgente occasione queant, nee 
colloquium cum amicis permittitur, nisi audiente custode carceris. In 
oriente et occidente ac remotioribus austri partibus clamor ubique 
pro executione legum poenalium ac capitalium contra catholicos: 
Unde etiam nuper rumor ingens percrebuit de quibusdam interfidendis 
sacerdotibus sed jam evanuit, nihilominus inter spem metumque 
hsremus, quid in posterum fiet, magis tamen sperantes meliora. 
Interim Deum Optimum Maximum deprecor quicquid contigerit ut 
felix faustusque in suum bonorem nostramque salutem qui Illustris-

To the most Illustrious the Nuntio in Flanders 
and to his Secretary, our agent's brother. 
Most Illustrious Lord, 

It is my custom during spring time and summer to visit the more 
distant parts of the kingdom, that I may labour (so far as is possible 
in these most disturbed times) for the preservation of ecclesiastical 
disdpline, for the strengthening of mutual concord and peace, and the 

auieting of dissensions and contentions should any such arise; and 
lb hi^ been the reason for the silence which I have up till now 
observed in regard to your spring letters, which reached me a little 
later than usual. And now to begm with, I tender you my best thanks 
for your last letters to me, full as they were of all that kindness and 
affection which prompts you to offer and to perform whatever your

love for us here in England can suggest ; as indeed you have alraadjr 
so often shown in your dealings with the Rev. D. Matthew Kellison, 
the most worthy President of our College at Douay, which under your 
protection seems now to flourish anew and to have recovered its 
former reputation. Feeling, as I do, so great a hope of the happy 
progress of that college, I need not say more on the point, but come 
back again to the sad and most distressing state of this England of 
ours ; but although it be borne down by oppression and misery, I am 
none the less full of a firm hope that God would at length take pi^ 
on His afflicted people, and put an end to the persecution which is 
waged on all the Catholics of the realm. The fiercest of our perse- 
cutors is the Prefect of the North, who (lately) caused a secular ptiest 
to be put to death in the usual cruel way, and who sends his pmv 
suivants by day and night, to be ever in readiness at home and abroad, 
to arrest the Catholics, put them into prison and despoil them of their 
goods. I will speak only of one of many among the disgraceful acts 
of his cruel treatment of us, which occurred at no great distance from 
the place where I was staying. One of the agents of this Prefect in 
the course of his rounds came one night to the house of a certain 
Catholic, and found both him and his wife in bed ; the wife, heannff 
the noise, sat up in bed, whereupon he slew her husband, and wounded 
the wife with many wounds and sores ; and when a certain nobleman 
complained of this wicked treatment at the assizes (?), the murderer 
replied that (his victim) had attempted to rise to take up his sword, 
which was near his bedside, and would have resisted the magistrate, 
or slain him ; whereupon the unjust judge, uttering threats and terrors 
against the widow, set her husband's muiderer at liberty without any 
further difficulty. But, for the sake of brevity, I will pass over manf 
occurrences of ttds nature. In the southern part of the country and 
nearer to London things go more smoothly, lest the projected match 
between our Prince ami the Infanta of Spain should be hindered; 
but all the same, in the city of London pursuivants and spies are daily 
at work, and many Catholics are still thrown into jail. Some are kept 
so strictly that none may have access to them, or communication of 
any sort ; some aw kept a little less closely, yet so that they may not 
leave the prison however uigent the necessity; nor are they allowed 
to have any talk with their Mends, save in the hearing of the keeper 
of the prison. Everywhere in the east and west, and in the moie 
remote parts of the south, there is a public cry for the execution of 
the penal laws and sentence of death against the Catholics ; hence a 
widely-spread rumour was in circulation lately about the probabk 
execution of certain priests, but now it has died down ; all the same^ 
we live in uncertain^ betwixt fear and hope as to what will happen, 
hoping however for better times. Meanwhile I ask Almighty God that 
whatever comes to pass may prove to be of happy import and to His 
honour and our safety ; and may He long preserve your most illustriou^ 
lordship to us and to His Church.

96 LBTTBRS OF THE ARCHPRIEST HARRISON 

Reverend Sir, 

I have received letters from the Rev. Matthew Kelison, President 
of our English College at Douay in Flanders, and have learnt from 
them of the great interest and love which the most illustrious Nuntio 

in Belgium bears towards our nation : the aforesaid Rev. 

President, of our College at Douay, who also told me of the affection 
and goodwill of your brother towards us in Belgium. Hence the 
Rev. President of our College made known to the Most Illustrious 
Nuntio, and to your brother his secretary, that our affairs in the 
[Roman] Court cannot be brought to a successful issue because we 
nave no agent there to look after oiur interests, and accordingly it was 
arranged between them that, as you are well known at the Curia, 
accustomed to its ways and highly commended, you should be invited 
to undertake the work. And therefore the Rev. President of our 
College has written to me that I should forward my letters to your 
lordship, whereby I give you authority and power to execute the 
business of the English clergy in the Roman Ciuia ; and this, with the 
consent of my assistants, I hereby make known to you ; and when I 
shall have ascertained their opinion and obtained their consent on 
certain matters, I will let you know what has to be done in the future. 
Meanwhile I commend myself earnestly to your prayers. 

Given on the 9th of December, 16 18. 

Your Lordship's most affectionately, 

Wil. Har[rison], Archpriest, Proton. Apos. 

Be it known to all persons whom this letter may reach that I, 
William Harrison, Archpriest of England and Protonotary Apostolic, 
have, with the consent of my assistant brethren, appoint^ the Rev. 
,^ Procurator and Agent of the English Clergy, to 
attend to its business in the Roman Curia. To the truth and witness 
whereof I have to these letters affixed my name and my public official 
seal. December 9, 1618. 

Reverend Sir, 

Although there are few matters in this my office of Archpriest 
which bring with them any enjoyment or pleasure, especially at this 
time, when our condition is so uneasy by reason of the fresh storms 
of persecution which daily arise: and since I undertook this office 
grudgingly and against my will, but, God so disposing, according to the 
will of our most holy [Father the Pope] and of others, I must try to 
be ready and prompt m facing all dangers and labours, and as well 
as I can to bear my burden, heavy though it may be, for the love of 
Christ. I should be afraid of succumbing to its weight were I not 
supported by the assistance and solicitude of my friends and the kind 
services of others, among whom you must surely be reckoned if the 
report of ours speaks truly. And as I cannot (in person), I will ever 
hold in grateful memory those offices of kindness and charity which 
you have rendered to me, a stranger at a distance, and the most

timely aid which you have given with kind and ready will to the 
watchful and worthy President of our College at Douay in the affiurs 
and needs of that institution. And although we have often experienced 
your affection in other weighty cases, we owe you a fresh debt of 
gratitude for so kindly arranging that your brother (who is so highly 
spoken of) should undertake to see to our afiairs in the Curia. Not 
to detain you longer, I commend myself to your prayers, begging 
Almighty God to have you in His safe keeping. 
Given at London December the 9th, 1618. 

Your Lordship's most obedient servant,

THE CATHOLIC REGISTERS OF HOLYWELL, 

FLINTSHIRE 

Part I. "The Cross Keys" or Secular Mission 

Part II. " Y« Old Star" or Jesuit Mission 

The records of Holywell, though scanty, are of some interest from the fi^ct that this 
town, fiunous for many centuries for its miraculous Well, continued to be the letort 
of pious pilgrims eren during the worst days of persecution. Another unusual feature 
is mat, though hardly more than a village, there were in it at one time three, and 
for many generations two, missions. The Secular Qergy and Jesuits made Holrwdl 
a centre tor their long and arduous circuits amongst the remote towns and viUagei 
in North Wales. The Franciscans resolved to found a house here in 1687, and 
Father Michael Russel was appointed Preses, but the residence was soon given np^i 

The Secular and Jesuit priests during the penal times lived at the " Cross Keys " 
and the " Star " respectively. These inns were situate one on each lide of the present 
Catholic Church, and the clergy seem to have adopted this strange expedient to allay 
suspicion which might arise from the presence of strangers. The following is a Im 
of the clergy serving Holjrwell up to the Catholic Emancipation, the date to whidi 
I have contmued the Renters: — 

The '' Cross Keys." Secular Mission. 

f (i) John Plesington a/ias Scarisbrick, martyred at Chester 1679, served HolyweU 
for some time between 1665 and 1679, but was priest at Puddington HaU, Cbeuiire, 
at the time of his seizure and martyrdom. {. 

(2) John Price aiias Bryan, son of Richard Price of St. Asaph's, was born in 
or about the year 1647. He was sent to Douay College, and when twenty-two yean 
of age was admitted into the English College at Rome September 29, 1669, whcxe 
he was ordained priest April 16, 167a, but remained at the College till April, 1676, 
when he left for the English Mission, and if not in that year, came soon afterwards 
to the Cross Keys in Holywell, where he passed the remainder of his misaonarr 
career. He was alive in 1694, but the date of his death has not been asoertainea. 
During the reign of James II Mr. Price procured a lease of the ancient chapel over 
the Well, and nad possession given up to him by Sir Roger Mostyn, of M ottyn, 
Bart. It was the Queen's pleasure, however, that the Jesuits should have the clii|>d 
for their use, and they demanded the key from Mr. Pnce. On his refusal to deliver 
it, the door was broken open, and Mr. Price ejected. He appealed for redrev to 
Sir Roger Mostyn, who acknowledged that the lease was duly executed, but dedtned 
to incur her Majesty's displeasure oy opposing the proceedings, though he was in 
fiivour of the secular's claim to the right of patronage to the chapel. Upon this 
the Queen wrote to him from Whitehall, under date May 8, 1687, informii:^ nim that 
the King had been pleased by roval grant to bestow upon her Majesty the andent 
chapel Mjoining St. Winefrid^t Well, and desiring him to present possession in her 
name to Father Thomas Roberts, the Jesuit incumbent of the Star, who would 
deliver her Majesty's letter into Sir Roger's hands. This unfortunate dispute was 
the cause of lasting unpleasantness. 

(3) Peter Wynne a/uu Bod well, son of Griffin Wynne and his wife, Dorothy 
Parry, of Carnarvonshire. He studied at St. Omer's College and Ghent for five 
years, and was admitted into the English Collie at Rome September 28, 165c, at 
the age of eighteen. He was ordained priest November 21, i66a Two or three 

4c Thaddeus' Frandsctms in England^ p. 158. 

f John Bennett, a secular priest here in 1580, became a Jesuit, and his name 
will be found below.

years later he left Rome for the English Mission, and eventually he seems to have 
succeeded Father Price to the Cross Keys, and is met with here in 1702 and about 
1715, 

(4) William Wilmot, whose earlier career cannot be traced, as probably he 
passed under some other name, was pfesent at the Chapter of 1694, acting as deputy 
tor Mr. George Barrett, Archdeacon of Shropshire and part of Herefordshire. 
According to evidence before the Commissioners for Fodeited Estates in July, 17 18, 
Mr. Wilmot took up his residence at the Cross Keys Inn, Holywell, in 1716, and 
boarded with Thomas Parry, the innholder, at £fi per annum, the chapel bein^ in the 
house. Mr. Wilmot was arrested by the wretched apostate, Richard Hitchinough, 
in 1716, but was soon released, and continued to reside at the Cross Keys until his 
death, August 2, 1720. 

(5) John Roberts, son of William Roberts and his wife, Elizabeth Watkins, of 
Montgomeiyshire, was admitted into the English College, Rome, June 2J, 1705, 
aged 32, and was ordained priest 22 December, 1708, and left the College for England 
April 13, 1 7 13. He succeeded Mr. Wilmot, and remained at the Croas Keys tiu his 
death, January 6, 1753, aged 80. 

(6) John Gwillims ali4u VHlliams was admitted into the English College at 
Lisbon September 22, 1735, and was ordained priest in June, 1739, and came to 
England in 1743. He succeeded Mr. Roberts at the Cross Keys in 1753, and con- 
tinued here till his death, April 3, 1763. 

(7) Philip Jones, son of Edward Jones, of Clytha, and his wife, Clare Fitcgerald, 
born 29 September, 1722, became an alumnas at Douay in his first vear's philosophy, 
37 December, 1741, and was ordained priest December 17, 1740. He succeeded 
Mr. Gwillims here in 1763, and remained till his death, August 10, 1800, aged 
almost 78. He was a member of the old Chapter, and was held in the hiehest 
respect. He left a fund for the Secular Mission of Holywell in the hanos of 
Mr. George Gildart, his executor, who, on the advice of Bishop Sharrock, trans- 
ferred it to Monmouth, where it was more wanted Uian at Holywell, there being 
another chapel here, and but a small congregation. 

(8) George Thomas Gildart, born 1764, was sent to Sedgley Park School in 1774. 
and thence proceeded to the English College at Valladolid, where he was ordaineid 
priest On returning to Englana he was stationed for a time in London, Stonor 
Park (Oxon.), and Gloucester. Upon Mr. Jones' death he went to Holywell, and 
took possession of the effects of the Cross Keys Mission, but resided with Father 
Edward Wright, S.J., at the Star. Mr. Gildart commenced his registers in 1801. 
He sold the Cross Keys in 1802, and transferred the funds of the mission to Mon- 
mouth, where he served the mission for twenty years, sfe and opened the first public 
chapel in that town. He retired in ill-health to Usk, then to Brecon, and ended 
his days at Swansea February 17, 1827, aged 63. 

The " Star." Jesuit Mission. 

(i) John Bennett (alias Price, Floyd, and Baker), son of John Hugh Bennett, of 
Flintshire, ordained at Douay 1578, and sent on the mission 158a In 1582 he was 
tried before the Bishop of St. Asaph, and the next year, at the Assizes at Holywell, 
Mras condemned to death. This sentence having been commuted, he was taken to 
Ludlow Castle, and there imprisoned and cruefly tortured. A Protestant minister 
visited him when on the rack, and in an arrogant manner sought to argue with him. 
Father Bennett said, "Seeing nothing will satisfy this babbling fellow but a loqua- 
cious dispute, I pray you hoist him up on another rack, that from similar pulpits we 
may argue the matter on equal terms.*' Father Bennett was afterwards banished 
the kingdom, and entered the Society of Jesus in 1586 at Verdun. At the risk of 
his life ne returned to his former mission in 1590, and laboured with much fruit; 
*'the poor and meaner sort of people flocked to him in such multitudes to receive 
the spiritual cordials and divine food which he freely and copiously ministered to 
them, that in the depth of night he used to have an hundred of them in one 
assembly. In his liletime they commonly called him 'the SainL'*'f One of 
Father Bennett's converts was Ed. Morgan alias Singleton, of Bettisfield, co. Flint,

who went to the English G>Uege, Rome, and after his ordination was imprisoned in 
the Fleet for fourteen or fifteen years, and eventually martyred at Tyburn, April a6, 
1643. Father Bennett died in London December 25, 1625. 

(2) Humphrey Evans, SJ., alias Brown, u thought by ¥o\ey (Records, v, 936, 
▼ii. 2^2) to have succeeded Father Bennett, but it is doubtful. Father Evans was 
a native of Carnarvonshire, and after the usual course of studies at Rome became a 
Jesuit After fift^-three years of apostolic labour he was seized with apopleinr at 
Pool Hall, Cheshire, and the pursuivants of Shaftesbury and the Privy Council, in 
searching the manor on Christmas Day, 1678, dragged him out of bed and cruelly 
beat him, thus hastening his death, which occurred tr^ee weeks later, at the age of 82. 
^(3) Hu^h Owen, S.T., alias John Hughes, was bom in Anglesea 1615, ordained 
at the English Collie, Rome, i<hi, and became a Jesuit in 1648. He is mentioned 
in 1679 as one of the three Jesuits who had alone survived the storm of the Oates 
Plot persecution in North Wales. He published, among other works, a Welsh 
Catecnism, a prayer book, and an Imitation of Christ, ** Dilyniad Crist.*' He died 
in Holywell December 28, 1686, aged 71. > 

(4) Thomas or Roderick Roberts, a native of Carnarvonshire, bom 1645, was 
living at the Star the same time as Mr. John Price was at the Cross Keys. He 
went to Welshpool probably during the reign of James H, where his house was 
attacked and the chapel plundered during the Orange Revolution of 1688. Though 
a party of soldiers spent six weeks in the neighbourhood trying to find the priest, 
he escaped their hands, hiding in woods and ditches. It is recorded of him that 
for the greater part of two summers he slept in the open fields, rather than endanger 
the safety of his friends by seekinc^ their noroitality. * 

(John Floyd alias Fisher served the Welsh district from 1632, and died, possibly 
at Holywell, August 29, i(^a^] 

($) Ignatius Thorpe alias Stafford was here in December, 1698, and still here 
in July, 1699, as evidenced by his registers at Worcester (printed by Crisp as 
Worcester Registers).* 

(6) Edmund Thorold, senior, was superior of the district 1 701-4, and may have 
been here earlier. He was at Welshpool in 1688, when he was arrested and 
imprisoned for nine months. He died November 7, 1713, aged 58.* 

(7) George Griffith, bom in the county of Flint, 166&-9, was here probably for 
many vears. He died in Holywell August 2, 1718, aged 50.^ 

(8) Philip Leigh alias Layton and Metcalfe, was at Powis Castle in lyio^ and 
probably came to Holywell in 1 71 5. He died here 31 January, 1717.^ 

(9) Thomas Roberts, bom in Anglesea, 1673, served the mission of Holywell 
for many years. He died here May 2, 1727, a^ed 54.* 

(10) Richard Moore, a native of*^ Warwickshire, bom 1672, served Holywell from 
1727 to 1 73 1, and again from about 1740 until his death here, 1753, aged 81. 

(11) John Hill, bora in Montgomeryshire 1683, was here for some years. ^<* 

(12) John Williams, a native of Monmouthshire, served this mission for many 
years. He died at Holywell September 23, 1761, aged 70.^^

It should be mentioned that even during the darkest days of persecution 
Catholics ooenly resorted to the Well, especially on St Win^rid's Feast An 
interesting aocument, preserved in the Public Record Office, endorsed "A note of 
Fftpisto and priests assembled at St Winefrid's Well on St Winelrid*s Day, 1629," 
gives the following names: — 

'*The Lord W« Howard ("Belted WiU"), the L. of Shrewsburie, Sir Tha

Lady Foakeland (FaUcland), and with her M' Everard the priest; M' Price, 
M' Cleiton (Clayton), priesto; Sir Thomas Jarrett hath two priestes resident 
in hu house, namely Pettinger (Dom Dunstan Pettinger, O.S.^.) and Umpton. 
At Sir William Norris's house (Speke Hall) two, namely Richardson (Robert) 
and Holland ; at Sir Cuthbert Clifton's two priests, Anderton & Smith ; also 
M' Arrowsmith's clothes and the knife to cut him up are at Sir CuUibert

viz. Michitt (? Tno. Mitchell) and Sefton (John), and M' Mayfield, the priest 
(? Wm. Maxfield), is archdeacon under the Bishop of Chaloedon, of Speake 
near the sea-side ; with divers other knights, lames, gentlemen and gentle- 
women of divers countries to ye number of fourteen or fifteen hundreth ; and 
the general estimation about a hundred and fifty more priestes, the most of 
them well known what they were." 

This note, eridently the work of a Government spy, shows that it would be 
wrong to infer, from such a public assembly of Catholics, that Holywell was exempt 
from those litUe marks of attention wherewith a Protestant Government sought to 
spread the new religion. These pilgrimages had been held before, and that the 
Government knew of them may be plainlv seen from the correspondence between 
Sir John Bridgman, Mayor of Poole in NIontgomeryshire, and the Privy CoundL 
Sir John's letter of October 23, 1626, explains the steps he had taken (according to 
instructions) to restrain the Holywell pilgrimages. That his efforts were unavafling 
we infer from another letter, dated Feoruary 10, 1636, in which he informs the Privv 
Conndl that he is suppressing all unnecessanr alehouses thereabouts, binding all 
innkeepers to take the names and addresses of'^ strangers who lodge with them, and 
keeping a strict watch on the Well, which, if necessary, he will wall up. 

Tms introduction has alreadv run to such a len{;th that it is impossible to refer

These lOHaUled * Worcester Resisten* were entered by Father Ignatius Thorpe 
aiias Stafford (and Potter and Xavier when at St Omer's CoUege and St Alban's 
College at Valladolid), S.T., in a little private volume, which he carried about with 
him from place to place during his missionary career. The entries commence May 9^ 
1685, whilst Father Stafford was stationed at the Jesuit house in Mounce Street, 
Monmouth, whence he would appear to have oocasiooally served High Meadow, 
ca Gloucester, the seat of the Halls, Lvdney, in the same county, the seat ol 
Sir Charles Wynter, Abergavenny, Ccmrtfield, in Welsh Bicknor, the seat of the 
Vaug^ian funihr, and Chepstow Grange, all in the county of Monmouth ; Rnardine, 
Whiteleeve, Woollaston Grange, and Brockweir, the two last seats of the Harris 
fiunily, all in Gloucestershire. Between November, 1689, and November, 1694, thane 
is a gap, the entries recommencing in the latter year with a baptism at Preitoo, 
probabnr the place of that name situated some five or six miles from T instead Lodfe^ 
kent, the propertv of Lord Teynham, to where Father Stafford was sent upon nis 
return to England ; for at the time of the Orange Revolution he was imprisoned, 
and after his release had sousht refuge on the Omtinent. From Linstead he served 
Dadmonds in June, 169C, and next appears as chaphdn to Ferdinand Poulton, Eaa., 
at Desborough, co. Northampton, in May, 1697. Early in 1698 he was at Writue 
Park in Essex, the seat of Lotd Petre, whom he probably accompanied to London, 
and was there in Tune of that year. Thence he removed to Homrell, as shown on 
page 107. From October, 1699, to July, 1700, he appears as chapudn to the Knights 
at Kingerby Hall, 00. Lincoln. There are no entries for 1701, and those for 170s 
mention no locali^. From the latter year there is a gap till November, 1706, when 
he appears as chapfaun to the Giffurds at Boaoobd, co. Staflbrd, till December, 1709,

then at West Grinstead, Sussex, in March, 2709-10, prohablv sapplying fiur Father 
Livinius Brown, S.J., till May, 171 1. Then he became chaplain to Sir John Webb, 
Bart, at Great Canford, co. f>orset, whence he attended to families at Wimbome 
Minster, Langham, Kingston, Hampreston, and sometimes assisted at the Jesuit 
Mission at Stapdiill, in the same county, and attended at Week, just over the Iwrder 
in Hants., till his entries cease with June 12, 2718. He probaUy had to leave the 
county in consequence of the troublous times succeeding the appointment of Com- 
missioners of Enquixy into Estates given to Superstitious Puroosia about this time, 
and he is next found at Worcester, where he succeeded Fauer Alex. Leigh a/ias 
Layton, SJ., in the charge of that mission. There he diedjune 17, 1720, aged 68. 
Father Stafford did not make any entries in his register at Worcester, but his imme- 
diate successor, Father William Case alias Baxter, S.J., commenced the Worcester 
Registers on September 24, 1720, as a continuation of the previous ones, which 
hemseforward were looked upon as appertaining to that mission. 

This account has been thus fully detailed m order to illustrate the by no means 
uncommon occurrence of the private registers of a priest during his missionary career 
in various places having been continued by his successor in the last place that he 
served as the registers of that mission.

THE CATHOUC REGISTERS OF NIDD HALL, 
N.R. OF YORK, 1780-1823. 

Tux entries are made in a small, thin note-book, size about 6iin. by 7 in., which 
descended to the late Mr. Charles James Bymand Tkappes, who gave a oopv of it 
to the Bishop of Leeds. The 6rst few P>j^ urc apparently torn out. It only 
contains baptisms— no marriages or deaths. The writing, as far as I can see, is mi 
in one hand, bat from 10 December, 1803 (inclusive), a different system begins to be 
followed. Prior to that date the entries are in Latin, and go right across the page, 
but from that time (with exceptions) the page is divided into two columns; in the 
left the entry in Latin, in the right an English translation, both si^ed "Jot: 
Roulhac" I guess from ibis that Roulhac began his duties as chaplain m i&>3, aad 
started his own system, and that the similarity in the handwriting is accountable for 
by the supposition that he copied out the earlier entries from some old book. The 
first few pages, from 1763 to 1780, have been torn out. Roulhac is traceable at 
Cajrton Grange and Masham. He went back to France after the Restoration. 

^r. Gillow has provided me with the following account, compiled fi[om his 
historical collections. 

There is much obscurity about the early history of Nidd HalL The martyred 
priest, Peter Snow, would appear to have resided with Ralph Grimston at Nidd, «nfl 
m 1598 was arrested in that gentleman's company. They were both martvred at 
York on June 15 of that year. On February 23, 1606, the manor and lonuhip dP 
Nidd was transferred by Lord William Howard and others, apparently acting as 
trustees, to Sir William Mallory and Sir William Ingleby, probably trustees to the 
Bymand estate for Sir Francis Trappes-Byrnand, whose £iitner, Frtmds Trappes, ef 
London, had married Anne, daughter and heir of Robert Bvmand, Esq., of Knares- 
borough, whose wife, Anne, was a granddaughter of Richara Neville, Lord Latimer, 
a descendant of King Edward III. Sir Fnuids Trappes, who was knitted at 
Windsor in 1603, assumed the additional surname of Bvrnand, and was the first of 
his family to reside at Nidd Hall. The estate continued in the Trappes fiunily until 
its sale, about 1 821, by Francis Michael Trappes, Esq., but some impediments to • 
legal title delayed the conve^ce, and hence the chapel, which was in the house, 
appears to have been used till the autumn of 1823. The congregation then merged 
into adjoining missions, and the priest, P^re Roulhac, remov^ to Cayton Giai^pe, 
a few miles north-west of Nidd. 

We have only occasional glimpses of the priests serving Nidd during its tenure 
by the Trappes (amiiy, but they tend to indicate that the maintenance of^the chapel 
was continuous. The two Franciscans who came over to England from their convent 
at Donay-— Father Joseph k S. Teresia Trappes in 1674, and Father Richard Trappes 
alias Braitbwaite in 1087 — mav well have served Nidd for some time. Mioiael 
Trappes-Bvmand, second son of Francis Trappes- Bymand and his mSt Jane, daughter 
of Michael Wharton, of Beverley, Esq., by Catherine, daughter and oohetresk of 
Christopher Maltby, of Maltby-in-Cleveland, Esq., who was at Douay Coll^ in 
1678, possibly became a priest, and if so, would doubtless be at Nidd at timet. 
But the first name of a chaplain supported by positive evidence is that of the 
Rev. Augustine Smithson. He belonged to an anaent family long seated at News- 
ham in the North Riding of Yorkshire, was educated at Douay College, though Us 
name does not appear in the published diaries, and came on the mission about 1663. 
He is stated to have lived with Mr. Trappes at Nidd for many years. He was 
apparently there in 1698, when he signed a declaration, in the presence of Bishop 
Sinitb, V.A«-N.D., to leave to the Qiurch what he had acquired during his minis- 
tration. Later he removed to Long Villiers, where he died about August or 
September, 17 17. A capitular, writing about 1693, gave him the following character: 

" No want c2f parts, but of charity a gicat want a declared enemy of the 

Chapter.'* 

The next priest met with is the Rev. John Dunn aHas Carr, bom in May, 1692, 
son of John Dunn and his wife Jane Carre, of the diocese of Dyiham. He took 



136 REGISTERS OF NIDD HALL 

the oath at Douay G>llege February 14, 17 12, probably came to the mission about 
17 1 7, and was chaplain to Mr. Trappes at Niad when Bishop Williams made his 
visitation in May, 1728, and gave connrmation to fifty of the congregation. Mr.Carr 
died in Yorkshire, possibly at Nidd, January 29, 174a 

No other name is recorded till that of the Rev. Robert Bullen, but it is most 
probable that his immediate predecessor went to Nidd in 1763, and commenced the 
missing registers from 1 763-1 780. He was the second son of Robert Bullen and his 
wife Helen Cockshed of Lancashire, and was bom July 31, 1740. He was admitted 
into the English College at Rome February 26, 1755, and placed in the third class 
of grammar. He was ordained priest December 22, 1764, and left Rome for England 
Apnl 25, 1765. His missionary labours are said to have been principally in York- 
shire, and he is found at Nidd in 1773 and again in 1781, when hb consregatioQ 
was returned at fifty communicants. He died October 9, 1792, probably at Nidd. 

P^re Joshua Roulhac, a French emigr^, and the last priest to say Mass at Nidd, 
came from Bishop Thornton about the autumn of 1803, and continued to attend to 
the congregation till the chapel was closed, in the autumn of 1823. He then 
appears to have removed to Cayton Grange, a seat of the Messenger fiunily, the 
former owners of Fountains Hall and the rums of the famous abbey.

No. XL 

THE OLD REGISTERS OF THE CATHOLIC 

MISSION OF LLANARTH IN THE COUNTY OF 

MONMOUTH, 1781-1838 

Transcribed by John Hobson Matthews from the 
Original Manuscripts at Llanarth 

Two square 8vo paper books, the first bound in stiff vellum, the second in boards. 
The first has on the outside of the cover: — "Bishop Sharrock*s Baptismal Register 
to be kept at Perthyre, Monmouth or Uanarth.— P. Thespien. Jan. 25, 1813." 

The Mission of Llanarth has had a more or less continuous existence ever since 
the ancient church of that parish was finally diverted to Protestant uses in the reigp 
of Elizabeth. For this continuance throuehout the period of Penal legislati<Hi it is 
indebted to the Catholic fidelitv of the family of Herbert, who have been Lords 
of the Manor of Llanarth from the year 1456. Down to the middle of the eighteenth 
century Mass was said only in the domestic chapel of their mansion of Hendreobeth 
(now odled Llanarth Court); but for the last 150 years the Catholics have assembled 
in the chapel which stands in the grounds at a wort distance from the house. 

For the benefit of genealogical readers of this Register it should be explained 
that the descendants of John Wifiiam Thomas of Treowen and Llanarth, High Sheriff 
1587, followed the Welsh custom by using his Christian name as their surname, 
lliat b to say, they bore the cognomen Jones for nine generations, until in 1848 
the late Mr. John Arthur Edward Jones of Llanarth assumed by Royal Licence 
the surname Herbert in lieu of Jones. This was a reversion to the clan name^ 
which had meantime been borne only by cadet branches. 

The first Volume is entirely in the neat, bold, cursive handwriting of Bishop 
Sharrock, and nearly all the entries appear to have been written at one and the 
nme time — probably copied from roueh memoranda, as was usually done. The 
second Volume is in the handwriting of the Rev. William Gerard throughout, with 
the exception of about the last six Baptisms. 

The Rev. Edward Tones served the Llanarth Mission 1774-1799, in which latter 
year he died there and was buried in the parish churchyard. 

The Rev. William Gerard served Llanarth during 39 years, and died there 
23 May 1830, aged 78. He was buried in the Jones* (Herbeits*) family vault in the 
churchyard. 

The Rev. W. F. Bevan wasofl&dating at Llanarth in 1832, and the Rev. G. F. Beavan

REGISTERS OF ST, JOSEPH'S CHAPEL, 
TRENCHARD LANE {now STREET), BRISTOL, 

1777-1808 

Boor I 

Unlike the country missions, supported by the local gentry, that at Bristol must be 
attributed to the requirements of resident and floating populations, attracted by the 
position of the great western port for South Wales, Ireland, and America, from not 
only the United Kingdom but the Continent 

The first book is of paper, 7} in. by 6| in., bound in skin, exclusive of the flyleaf 
at each end, and consists of 162 pages of births and baptisms written from the 
beginning, and 18 pages of marriages and deaths written from the end. It has 1)een 
ruled for dates and money columns, which have been partially used for tabulating 
entries. The Society is indebted to Father Francis Grene, S.J., for facilities in 
transcribing the registers, which has been done by Mrs. Seymour Spencer and myself. 

I am indebted to our Recorder, Mr. Joseph Gillow, for the following notes of 
the resuscitation of Catholicity in Bristol since tne penal days, and of the priests who 
served the mission. When further books of the Registers are printed, they will be 
supplemented by further information. 

Dr. Oliver (Collections for the Western Counties, y, 108) tells us that "from the 
so<alled Reformation until the accession of George 1 1, in no commercial city of the 
British Empire was Catholic faith and practice more discouraged and depressed than 
in Bristol. Mons. Jorevin assures us, that towards the end of Charles IPs reign, 
"no one can hear Mass at Bristol, though it is a port frequented by many Catholics 
— Flemish, and French, and Spaniards, and Portuguese." Sir John Bramston in his 
Autobiography (Camden Soc, 1045) mentions the arrest of a priest whilst saying Mass 
in a house in Bristol on Sunday, April 2C, 1686, who was brought to the King's bar 
on the following May 10, and remanded to the King's Bench prison. Notwith- 
standing the former assertions, it is probable that the Catholics in Bristol were 
attended by priests from nei|g;hbouring missions, and occa<iionally had the opportunity 
of attending Mass in the dtv during a great part of the penal times. In or about 
1724, Father Joseph Marshall, S.T.» was residmg with Mr. Fermor in Earl Street, 
Jobbing's Lays. He left in or before 1727. Father John Baptist Beaumont, O.S.F., 
was titular guardian of Bristol from 1734-7, and probably resided near the city and 
attended to its spiritual wants. About the same time, or a little earlier, Father John 
Baptist LAlart alias Peters, S.J., was, here for a time, and the next Jesuit on record 
is Father John Busby alias Brown, who settled in Bristol some years before his death, 
which Yo\ey (Records S,/,) thought might have occurred there, though Dr. Oliver 
diitioctly says that he died at Boulogne, Julv 20, 1743. He was succeeded by Father 
John Scudamore, S.J., of the ancient family of Penibridge Castle, who had a little 
chapel in the upper part of a house at Hook's Mills, near the Orphan Asylum on 
Aiihley Down. Father Ignatius Grant (Licture on tygo) says that he came in 1738, 
bat this b obviously a rather hasty conclusion drawn from Dr. Oliver's statement 
that Father Scudamore was here about forty years. In 1743 he removed to St. James* 
Back, where he opened a chapel, which he continued to serve till his death, April 8, 
1778, aged 82. He was buried opposite to the porch of St. James' Church. Previous 
to his death he was given a socius in the person of Father John liaptist Fontaine, 
S.J., in 1777, and it was he who commenced the registers. He left after the Gordon 
Riots of 1780, and was replaced by Father Thomas Brewer, .S.J., who remained till 
his death, April 18, 1787, aged 44. His elder brother. Father John Brewer, S.J., 
of Shepton Mallet, occasionally supplied for him. During Father Brewer's time the 
want of better accommodation was seriously felt by the congregation, and he com- 
menced to raise subscriptions towards a new house and chapel, and had accumulated 
considerable funds when death prevented him from carrying out his purpose. His 
successor v»as Father Robert Plowden, S.J., who is said to have taken possession of 



lS2 



KiGisrmss or 



the mhrirm in October, 1787. He provided x caovenient and roocnj house, and 
opened Sc Joaeph's Chapel in Trencfaafd Street 00 June 27, 179a He also purchased 
property at the west end af the chapei on wfakh to erect poor-schools, at an expense 
6t owcx jCirOaa, In celefantiaQ oJF the rmttmarj of the opening of this chapel. 
Father Grant gsve a way intercstiDg ** Lectare on I79(\" in whidi he traced the 
history of the misrina, and gave a fi^ of one hundred and thirty-three priests who 
had ministered to tiie Brklol Cariwirt diMni to i8fa The dafees of the first three 
priests, however, cannot be a c ceiUcd as accnrate, and Tary sonaewhat frnn the above 
acco«nt. With thb '*LectiBe''was pobfished a very excellent portrait of Father 
Plowden. During this worthy ex-Jeaal's tiiK, for the Society had been suppressed 
in 1773, ^ ^v*^ often assisted by I^re Jean Marc Romain Mooder, a French emigr^ 
who had settled in Bristol as a teacher of IIk French langnaf^ in 1797, and remained 
tin his appointnaent as diaplain to the Chichester fiunily at Calferieig^ in Angust, 1823. 
Another oocasiooal asMstant in 1810 was Pcre Amator Vakntin Le Villain, who tike- 
wise taught French in Bristol. From July 181 1 to November 1812, Father Plowden 
had an assistant in the person of the ex-Jesait« Father John Reeve alims Power, who 
did not rqoin the Society ; and from November 1812 mi Father Plowden's departure 
from Bristol in 181 5, Father Joseph Tate, S.J., was his san'us^ and then assoi 
charge of the mission until 1&2. i, S^ n^

Montagu married Dr. Slmifkter^ not Haughten. (Registers of Ctmdray; Caik, Rec,

Byrne, who died in 1783, nnd whose skeleton may he seen in the Royal College of 
Surgeons. Both assumed the show-name of O'Brien. Cotter's remains were stated 
to have been raised by the infamous Resurrectionisti of those days ; but they doubtless 
repose still in the grave mentioned in these registers. Such minute description of 
bis living height would seem conclusive.
